I believe that any POSIX compliant system would be able to handle
UTF-8 transparantly, at least as seen from the kernel APIs.
That is I am not so sure utilities will be able to handle UTF-8.
I do not think POSIX will require UTF-8 as the default system encoding.
I have not heard of such requirements being proposed.
