Can you quote chapter and verse for this, either Unicode or 10646?
The latter spec tells you that the sequence EF BB BF may be used as
a *signature* at the beginning of UTF-8 data (since it is unlikely
to occur in any other kind), but does not IMHO imply that the
sequence is removable or doesn't represent a real ZWNBSP.
