UTF-8 video terminals

Almost a decade after Plan9 switched to Unicode, we have now quite a
number of mainstream DEC VT100 terminal emulators available (XFree86
xterm, Kermit for Windows, 9term, etc.) that support the Unicode/UTF-8

I wonder, whether this is catching on with the manufacturers of real
VT100-compatible video terminals (today probably called "thin clients").
Do you know about any hardware video terminals that support UTF-8? Or is
nobody bothering any more to update this technology today?
