Potentially, yes. The strxfrm() inconsistency issue disproportionately
affected de_DE.utf8, for example. There were other locales that were
affected less severely, and I think the majority were not shown to be
affected at all.

That being said, it probably wouldn't have caught that particular
issue if we had broad coverage. It probably would catch a broken test,
