I would like to see this fact registered somehow so that localechooser can 
be made to show an appropriate dialog and take appropriate action if the 
user does return to it after this stage.

Something I just now remember...
Some installation methods run localechooser delayed (s/390, some arm 
installs) as does the 'hands-off' infrastructure. We'll have to check how 
this affects those installs. I think most should be OK.
