This has nothing to do with the scenario I described, which involved
removing a "BOM" from the start of an arbitrary fragment of data,
thereby corrupting the data because the "BOM" was actually a ZWNBSP.

If you have an arbitrary fragment of data, don't fiddle with it.

If you know enough about the data to fiddle with it safely, it's not
