C -> C.UTF-8 is a long standing request/bug, this way builders
represent a more realistic environment and can handle test-suites that
excercise unicode better (e.g. without tricks to generate locale data,
or build depending on language packs)

glibc move - that's part of regular toolchain/archive opening updates.
These are typically set by toolchain hackers, of which adam is one,
but i'm sure he consulted doko and kernel folks etc.

systemd transition - this is inline with the systemd session we had at
the UOS 14.06 http://summit.ubuntu.com/uos-1406/meeting/22277/ubuntu-server-plans-around-systemd/
