Yes, true - BUT: Programs don't have to be POSIX compliant,
and even if they were, nothing stops users from using an
external tool to rename filenames from a POSIX-portable one
to something that isn't portable - or reasonable - anymore...

"But I like the emojis in the names of my business report files!"

"We use stars in filenames to show how important they are."

"the number of dashes before the actual name indicate the
revision level of the file."
