I think per https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15359 we want  
to let the BOM checking happen before the other considerations.

I think eventually we want to update the text to no longer make use of the  
IANA registry (which is open ended) and just directly defer to the  
Encoding Standard (which only supports a fixed list of encodings). There  
is still some work to be done to finalize the latter though which is why I  
have not asked the HTML, DOM, File API etc. standards to update their text  
on the matter. I hope this clarifies the situation sufficiently.
