Well, yeah, but FF and FE *are* valid characters in many encodings.
Latin encodings for most european language environments are going to
be higher up the priority list, for example. It makes no sense putting
utf-* encodings before the others unless you know beforehand that
you're going to deal with a lot of these files.

And there's an UTF-8 language environment, after all, for people who
routinely deals with utf-8 data. Are there environments (operating
systems, language environments, whatever) where utf-16 is the norm?
