This is legacy code from zope 2.8.4 that I have to
deal with during migration. All new code is supposed to use
u'' strings.
In fact, above is only an example but in real case we
have properties set for folders, eg. 'title' that
contains national characters.

You can easily check it yourself if you want.
Just create a Folder and set it's 'title' property
to one that contains some unicode characters.
You'll not be even able to add ZPT object into
that folder I think (at last it is not possible for me).

What do you mean by internal ZPT encoding? Docs says:
"Starting Zope 2.10.2 the ZPT implementation uses unicode as internal
so there should be no encoding at this level, I think.

I already realized same thing and used sitecustomize.py
with sys.setdefaultencoding('utf-8') as a quick fix. This works
but is not nice solution. I rather expected Zope 2.10 resolver to
deal with this.
