I've looked at POSIX and the only thing I could find is this:

This means zero Unicode support.

As for C, C only has char16_t, char32_t, minimalistic literal support...
I'm not sure about standard library. That's about 2% of Unicode support.

I don't know what is sc2.

So, in total:
POSIX - 0% Unicode.
C - ~2% Unicode.

That's how far "abstract characters" get you.
