    Proably true for the filesystem level, but certainly not for the file index stored in a ZIP file where there's no reason why it should not contain correctly encoded and portable UTF-8 names.
    WinZip authors just failed to provide an interface that allows storing and renaming file and directories entries stored in the ZIP file. Creating file entries that just and only store the same encoding as the native encoding of the filesystem from which files were added is a severe flaw of WinZip, not of the Zip file format itself!
