You asked for it to be removed from the trailing position, so you're not being consistent here :-).

When found in the leading position, it's no different from any other non-ASCII character. And it shouldn't be treated any differently. The BOM won't appear in address bars unless someone purposely inserts it. IRIs don't appear at the start of any common file types that I'm aware of, so BOM won't naturally occur like this at the start of an IRI unless someone has put it there.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
