Are you sure? I am NOT talking about gettext and translations but about
locale support. Most programs don't care so it seems to work.

One thing that does care is the newer perl (e.g. 5.6):

   cerebro:~# LANG=xp perl
   perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
   perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
           LANGUAGE = (unset),
           LC_ALL = (unset),
           LC_CTYPE = "de_DE",
           LANG = "xp"
       are supported and installed on your system.
   perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

and this fails on redhat-6.x (reportedly), simply because all
distributions use the locale support from glibc (which is, of course, a
good thing), which installs a german locale but not de locale.
