In the HTML5 spec draft, the BOM is a legal way to specify that the 
page is UTF-8 encoded. I don't see any mention of that in your draft. 
Instead there is a warning against using it together with CSS (and 
perhaps a good advise w.r.t. CSS - I don't know.)

According to your BOM tests, then only Netscape 4 has problems with 
this. And at least HTML5 doesn't think that this is a reason to warn 
against using it.
