According to the Unicode Consortium:

“Use of a BOM is neither required nor recommended for UTF-8”
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode6.0.0/ch02.pdf

Given the issues surrounding the use of the BOM, I would agree with the
suggestion in Comment 12, that the word (preferred) be removed, but more
explanation be given.
