Not exactly. I mean that using the BOM in UTF-16, one can detect
when a string is in the UTF-8 encoding and when it is in the
UTF-16 encoding (and in the UTF-16 case, one can also detect the
endianness). So a consistent API can be designed to work with both
UTF-8 and UTF-16; they don't clash with each other.
