If we always followed the principle "X could be broken, so let's not use 
X", then we would never get anything done.  Instead, "X is broken, so

I don't agree with that, but perhaps we differ in our interpretation of 
"multilingual use".  If you have special requirements, you can always 
turn the locales off.
