Agreed, but I think one of the problems is that the preference-ordering
is the same for load-time-detection as it is for save-time-detection,
so if you move utf-8 up for detection you end up saving all new files
in utf-8 which is not OK in non-utf-8 locales.
I suggested introducing a second preference-order, but nothing came
out of it (probably because I didn't code anything up).
