    I *think* that this was exactly what Unicode were thinking of with U+FEFF, but ISO were thinking of ZWNBS for the same codepoint and merging Unicode and ISO 10646 lead to the ambiguity.

    However I have only the vaguest notion that this is the history and won't be at all surprised if someone corrects me.
