There is nothing to object at this time. This change in its current form
was announced and discussed very long ago, when new naming scheme was
introduced for the first time. Few years of transition period (now ended)
are enough for users to put correct value to the LANG variable. What you
suggest is just another transition period, it is superfluous.

UPDATING note submitted today, HEADSUP was anounced few years ago.
