Ok, I'm with you in that the correct way to handle this case is to go into
quirks mode. But are there any way to know that the browser is working in
quirks mode? All the <DOCTYPE> related conditions are easy to spot looking at
the HTML source. But the BOM one is not, because it's an
invisible-no-breaking-space character, so you need to use a hexeditor to see

In my case, there are two developers working on a django project, one is
working with TextMate in OS X and other with a windows editor (notepad+). This
last one is putting a UTF-8 BOM. After that the Django development server is
adding other UTF-8 BOM. But looking at the sources of the HTML with a text
editor, I can't see nothing before the <DOCTYPE>. This will be a hard to spot
