Right, but locales and languages are 2 different things.
All translations in debian-installer use UTF-8 encodings, whereas people
might want to use a locale with their legacy encoding.  Or do you want
to only propose UTF-8 locales by default?

I also wonder what happens with the locales package at installation
time, is it installed and configured?
