As discussed in and, I now think the right answer for the POSIX case is to ensure the legacy locale detection logic always treats that the same way as it does the C locale.

LANG=UTF-8 I'm still not sure about - as I understand it, that's a partial locale that only defines LC_CTYPE, which may be why the libc implementation ignores it if you try to set it as a general category default.
