{string,[utf-8,plain],"this a new string type"}
It is already here, maybe in the more effective form.
It is easy to match too.

1> unicode:bom_to_encoding(<<16#FE, 16#FF>>).
{{utf16,big},2}
2> unicode:bom_to_encoding(<<16#EF, 16#BB, 16#BF>>).
{utf8,3}
3> unicode:bom_to_encoding(<<16#FF, 16#FE>>).
{{utf16,little},2}
