UnicodeEncodeError and UnicodeDecodeError are used to report un(en|de)codedable ranges in the source object, so it wouldn't make sense to use them for errors that have nothing to do with problems in the source object. Their constructor requires 5 arguments (encoding, object, start, end, reason), not just a simple message: e.g. UnicodeEncodeError("utf-8", "foo", 17, 23, "bad string").

But for reporting e.g. missing BOMs at the start it would be useful to use (0,  0) as the offending range.
