I think this is also included in the PDF spec

    If a PDF file contains binary data, as most do (see 7.2, "Lexical
    Conventions"), the header line shall be immediately followed by a
    comment line containing at least four binary characters—that is,
    characters whosecodes are 128 or greater. This ensures proper
    behaviour of file transfer applications that inspect data near the
    beginning of a file to determine whether to treat the file’s
    contents as text or as binary.

Just in case it helps,
