There's visibly a validation step that returns an error if you attempt to create files with invalid sequences (including other restrictions such as forbidding U+0000 and some other problematic controls).
For it to work the way I suggested, there would be low level routines that handles the names raw, and then on top of that, interface routines doing what you describe. On the Austin Group List, they mentioned a filesystem doing it directly in UTF-16, and it could have been the one you describe.
