But generated locales differ because different encodings are passed to
  $ LANG=fr_FR locale charmap
  $ LANG=fr_FR@euro locale charmap

Steve mentions in another message that switching fr_FR encoding to
ISO-8859-15 cannot be done without discussion, but glibc upstream
has a definitive position: encodings are never changed, period.
(It recently surfaces again about et_EE)
So this discussion is over before it begins ;)
