But what you are describing is an external parsed general entity, and the
requirement for a BOM with encoding of UTF-16 is still mandatory for such entities.
If a BOM is incovenient for a particular application, then you can serialize in
UTF-16BE or UTF-16LE, where the BOM is not compulsory (in fact it is forbidden
by the Unicode standard).
