If scripts intend to use LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 to force everything to
the standard locale with UTF-8 support, then the glibc should
be modified to regard C.UTF-8 like C w.r.t. $LANGUAGE. I mean:

xvii% LANGUAGE=fr_FR LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 cp
cp: opérande de fichier manquant
Saisissez « cp --help » pour plus d'informations.
xvii% LANGUAGE=fr_FR LC_ALL=C cp      
cp: missing file operand
Try 'cp --help' for more information.

Both should have output in English.
