ICSv7 should work with CB2007 as ICSv6 before (or even better),
So you could test the UTF-8 URL stuff in Icsv7.

IMO possible, though the server checks for valid UTF-8 URLs 
and decodes them as ANSI if a check failed. The server sends
however always UTF-8 URLs (same as IIS always sends UTF-8 URLs 
regardless whether a client accepts UTF-8 or not).

With those clients there won't be IMO a problem, as long as the
listed file names use only characters from the local default
ANSI code page. If the server shall also list any possible Unicode
file name you need CB2009 and ICSv7.
