But it is - in fact my local copies have the hack where I used
management_page_charset here. Now I'm seeing we dont even need
that - default_zpublisher_encoding is much better here.

Kate (as webdav editor client) plays very well with that.

Yes this double encoder marking is a mess. We need to be able to
provide a fixup (just like the infamous <base>-tag)

BOM is only for filesystem "unicode" of some 16-bit variants. Nothing
you really want to send over the wire (although you can).
But after all its just another encoding so it would be a matter
of setting the encoding correctly.
