Locales are not used by the installation procedure!

As for original proposal.  We do install locales package onto base system.  But
this file contains not only /usr/share/locale/* (14 Megs on my computer)
directories and files, but /usr/share/i18n/ (7 Megs on my computer), which are
of no use for installation procedure (these are the source files for localedef
program and others...)  I believe locale package must splitted!

Should I file a bug?
