So does SciTE *not* detect UTF-8 properly if there is no BOM? Because
the BOM is typically discouraged, on non-Windows systems at least.

It's easy enough to run fromdos on my end if I get a patch in CRLF
format. Working in LF format should not cause any problems for you (only
Notepad has a problem with LF files I think), and will make your work
more compatible with the majority of us devs ;)
