The technical issue here is that the libc has no "stateless" function to process bytes and text with one specific locale. All functions rely on the *current* locales. To decode byte strings, we use mbstowcs(), and this function relies on the current LC_CTYPE locale, whereas decimal_point and thousands_sep should be decoded from the current LC_NUMERIC locale.
