How about doing a similar "pre-scanning"(?) with auto-detection? We can ask
autodetector to  return "an indicator of undeterministic/unknown) until it
reaches a confidence level higher than a certain value (that thresold should be
internal to each implementation of autodetector). Then,  we can set a flag
(similar to m_checkedForHeadCharset). Would it be a good plan for bug 24420?

Yes, it may we ll be. Are you well familiar with how Gecko encoding detector
works? How much data does it normally need to choose an encoding with
confidence (and how much data would you expect our detector to need)?
