d-i debian-installer/locale string en_AU

Seems I got confused because on my sid laptop with dpkg-reconfigure
locales there are en_AU.UTF-8 (UTF-8) and en_AU (ISO-8859-1).

In the d-i locale chooser there is only en_AU, but it doesn't say if it
is UTF-8 or not.

If I select en_AU in d-i then both en_AU.UTF-8 (UTF-8) and en_AU
(ISO-8859-1) will be selected in the installed system's dpkg-reconfigure

If I leave it as the default (no locale selected in d-i) then only
en_AU.UTF-8 (UTF-8) will be selected in the installed system's
dpkg-reconfigure locales.

So, I guess that this bug can be closed due to PEBCAK.
