Found the following:

"Auto Flight, Flight Augmentation, Windshear Detection Function, Guidance:

In windshear conditions, the flight guidance acts on specially adapted FD pitch orders received from the speed reference system (SRS). The pilot must set go around thrust immediately (wich also triggers the FD SRS mode), and follow the pitch order to execute the optimum escape maneuver".

So, from that text and the memory item that states that TOGA thrust must be set or confirmed, and then follow the SRS orders, I assume that the FMGS "knows" you entered a windshear condition and thus keeps or re-engages SRS in the scenario I first described.

That may be the logic that AVApilot thought might exist.

Any other thoughts?
