Indeed, the note is outdated and incorrect. First, general unicode filename are allowed. They are encoded with UTF-8 internally. Second, currently there is no way to create an entry without encoding the filename to UTF-8 (if it is not ASCII-only). So you can't create ZIP file with arbitrary encoding (e.g. cp866) for old DOS/Windows unzippers.

Adding support of bytes filenames is different issue (issue10757).
