in 7.1 the INS of the commands Terminate and Activate in the table are swapped, thanks for that hint. It will be corrected in the next version.

For understandig:
The special life cicle management (reset card) is proprietary for the OpenPGP card application, other applications on the same card may have a different behaviour.
For that reason the Selection of the application is needed before a Reset.
