Because that locale has never been considerd as a "real" locale. It is
historically there in glibc as a kind of example....and this is the
only case where a locale exists for a language that's not officially
spoken in the said country.

To answer the original bug submitter: either you want a general Danish
(country) locale and you choose Danish (language) as installation
language....or you want to stick with English as main language but
want some locale settings to use Denmark as country.

In that latter case, you first pick English, then Denmark (this will
set "sane" defaults for mirrors and timezone), then you'll end up with
en_US as general locale.....then you define LC_CURRENCY=da_DK if, for
instance, you want to have the Danish settings for currency.

This is kind of a FAQ with locales: there isn't an en_FOO locale for
each and every country in the world and this is what LC_* variables
are about.

I'll close the cloned bug against localechooser: there is no
localechooser bug when it comes at these issues.
