I can't point to wording on this either, but SCSI has always taken the view
that recovered data is always transferred - that is why the TB bit has wording
to limit its effect to unrecoverable errors only. If DTE says to terminate a
transfer due to a recoverable error, it should terminate after the recovered
block is transferred.
