It is user confusion and his responsibility. It not leads to wrong
program build f.e. Moreover, you can't protect users who set 8859-1 that
way, they do not convert to 8859-15 as you assume but start to complain
everywhere that FreeBSD is not working instead.

It will be nice to do it that way. FreeBSD have a little part of world
locales, which indirectly assumes that they are really used.
