firstly: it is a myth that ie6 goes into quirks mode because of the BOM. It
doesn't. (just verified again)

2ndly: human readable encoding decl is not as important as "it just works ".
Moreover: You should pursue visible enc decl separately from tips issue.

3rdly: i don't think you realize the benefits of the Bom. (read bug 12897 and
think). Hint: Bom makes browsers immune to encoding override, which is a good
thing and even a XML-like feature in itself.

Hence I do not support the proposed change. I would rather speak louder in
favor of the Bom.
