This is not a "locale" but a keyboard variant....

Anyway, there is currently not automated setup of locali{z|s}ation
(which includes keyboard settings for X) when the chosen instalaltion
language is English. This basically comes from D-I design choices when
the package responsible for this (localization-config) was added.

In, the next generation of D-I, localization config will be installed,
and thus used, when the locale will be != en_US, so in your case, it
will be able to make the small modification you need for X keyboard settings.

Kostas, you maybe could already put what's needed in l-c for correct X
keyboard settings when the locale is en_GB : pc105 and not pc104....

This is mostly to be reported against the xfree86 packages....
