There are real implementations that produce and consume it.

Download a DBpedia dump, grep for \U. I'm pretty sure you'll find something. (I'd get right on it, except that it's pub o'clock in Galway.)

The slight WTF of using 8 hex digits were 6 would suffice is still better than very subtly deviating from ISO C, C++, C#, and Python.
