The spec's order for scripts is:

1) BOM
2) HTTP header
3) charset=""
4) Linking document

For documents, it is:

1) User
2) HTTP
3) BOM
4) <meta>
5) History
6) autodetect
7) default

I could see an argument for having the script order be:

1) HTTP header
2) BOM
3) charset=""
4) Linking document

...but why would you put charset="" between the HTTP headers and the BOM?
