UTF-16 Encoding Scheme and U+FFFE

How do I read definition D98 in TUS Version 6.3.0 Chapter 3 to prohibit
a file in the UTF-16 encoding scheme from starting with U+FFFE?  Or is
U+FFFE actually allowed to start such a file?

Is an implementation that deduces the encoding scheme of a plain
text file from a leading BOM to be characterised as reckless?
