FWIW, the XML spec says that XML processors must support UTF-8 and UTF-16
in both little-endian and big-endian forms. In the case of UTF-16, the
first character of the file (but not part of the XML document) should be a
"zero width non-breaking space" (xFEFF), which acts as a sentinel. (XML
spec 2.2 and 4.3.3.)
I'm not sure if this is intended to apply to BXXP default payloads.
