Excellent, so let's have someone state whether it's in the official
Unicode literature.

And independent of whether it is or not, I know that some mention of the
content of this discussion would be useful exactly below the table here
as, for example, a note stating that a little-endian UTF-16 could
conceivably also start with FF FE 00 00. To clarify to the programmer
one more detail about BOM by itself not being a perfect heuristic.
