I disagree on that particular point. If someone installs a Debian, and
the install programs asks for lat/long, and then the system starts
speaking the "right" language to the user, he will never have set the
locale explicitly.

Two solutions:

 - Have the install program infer the (default) locale from the
   lat/long, but the lat / long changing program doesn't touch

 - Don't mix coordinates and language at all. The install program asks
   for the default system locale as it does now.
