No. No, Ernest. Locales do NOT have to do with the Unicode character
set or with the processing of its characters, which is what this list
is for. Locales is a whole huge other world, independent of character
set, and needs to be on a separate list. I do NOT favour B.S.ing
around waiting for the proof that people will argue about the big
world of locales. I have been dealing with locales for a decade, when
I began working in CEN/TC304.
