(Sorry for the dup. bug. Apparently my search skills were insufficient.) 
Two more reasons not mentioned here for not prefering the BOM is that it makes
otherwise ASCII text not ASCII, and it is not supported by Java for UTF-8 (see
two links in dup. Bug 19931. 

As for PHP, a comment on the site suggests that the BOM causes problems:
