Somehow getting an official list of locales into the policy
rules might help.  But I think it is a faster short-term
solution to test the programs and report bugs to the package

But the list should be made as to remove old invalid
locales, not to prevent new ones from being supported.

Bad example.  Although both languages are Germanic in
origin, French in Belgium and Flemish in Belgium is a much
better example.
