Ronald or Dmitry, can you elaborate under what conditions you start your login shell on 10.9?  I cannot reproduce the behavior you observe.  With 10.9 Terminal.app and the default language settings in System Preferences and with the default Terminal.app preferences, specifically Settings -> (Profile) -> Advanced -> Character encoding -> Unicode (UTF-8) and "Set LANG environment variable on startup" checked, login sessions have LANG=en_US.UTF-8 defined and LC_CTYPE is not defined at all. Are you sure that isn't begin created by a shell profile somewhere?  (I can't check earlier OS X releases at the moment.)  That said, I agree that, if OS X accepts "UTF-8" as a valid locale, the locale module should, too.
