I agree with you. In fact, I tried to get user's preferred language in
the same way as gettext. It has guess_category_value() to do that and
the function is good enough because it considers $LANGUAGE, $LC_ALL,
$LANG, and also system-dependent preferences. But the function does
not seem a public API and I don't know how can I use the function in
Git. So I chose to use $LANGUAGE only.
