I think the most common occurence would be system files on MS Windows.
The byte markers are very unique: I think we should heed them unless
there are very important technical considerations speaking against it
(one reason would be if the utf-16 encodings were not
content-preserving for saving binary files.  No idea whether this is
the case).
