It's not safe as a system default, yes.  But we're not talking about
making the system default a UTF-8 locale.  We're talking about providing
one for those packages which need it.  Such package should know what
they are doing already, and should probably actually prefer to get such
error properly.

I wasn't planning to push it for Squeeze actually, unless glibc people
think it's ok to add it.
