UTF-8 BOM not supported in XHTML documents

Hello!

I think it's a well-known fact that the CSS Validator does not support
XHTML documents that contain an UTF-8 byte-order mark, but do not
declare their encoding on HTTP level. Here are two documents that only
differ in their "Content-Type" header:

 <http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://schneegans.de/temp/css-validator/xhtml-with-bom.aspx>
 <http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://schneegans.de/temp/css-validator/xhtml-with-bom-and-charset.aspx>

This problem gets more and more relevant since both Expression Web
Designer and SharePoint Designer use byte-order marks and XHTML by
default. Can we expect this bug to be fixed in the near future?
