Presumably it would also work if you just included a pair of blank
lines (or perhaps to make it harder to accidentally remove, blank
comment lines), since Python is only going to check the first two
lines of the file.

It's still annoying, but at least you aren't then forced to bother
replicating a Python-matching line that actually contains encoding
information.
