Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

The premise of the first bit is wrong; the spec uses all kinds of ways to refer
to BOMs, depending on whether it's talking about BOMs in general, or the
character, or whether it's a normative reference, or a non-normative casual
mention, etc. This is demonstrated by the multiple such examples that this very
bug mentions.

For the second bit: it's just as clear.

For the third bit: I don't see what problem this solves. The current text is
fine.
