I think this thread is confusing between data bytes and characters.

It is possible input character bytes when in "C", which can be interpreted as 
ISO-8859-1 sequence if it were in a ISO-8859-1 locale, and displayed as such
in a ISO-8859-1 terminal.

However, it does not mean you can input ISO-8859-1 characters in "C".
Strictly speaking, it is an sequence of characters outside of scope
of "C", which is undefined.
