Only one empty line is inserted, even if maintainer scripts are run
several times, so I belive it does not hurt.  Of course a better
solution would be to insert an extra newline only if needed, but
I do not know how to determine if a text file contains an EOL at EOF.

The bug submitter is right, newcomers do not understand these locale names.
But your solution is too verbose; IIRC there are currently 288 supported
locales, so lots of text will be displayed.
We could explain in the Description field how to decrypt locale names, and
keep current list unchanged.
