Bug#639166: expose iso14651/i18n as separate locale

Package: locales
Version: 2.13-16
Severity: wishlist

Would it be possible to expose the iso14651_t1 LC_COLLATE locale
definition from the source tree as a separate locale for the user?  It
would sometimes be quite useful in applications to be able to say
explicitly, give me a default, language-neutral sort ordering that is
multi-language aware.  And then for LC_CTYPE, it looks like the i18n
file would be a good fit.  (I don't really need any of the other
categories for this purpose.)

So, would this be possible with reasonable effort?  Does it need
significant upstream changes?  Or is it perhaps already available via
localedef somehow?
