What the windows installer got right and we still didn't is allowing
customization (This is probably the single part of the windows
installer which is still more advanced than anaconda). You can select
your preferred IM, your country and then override various things like
numeric date format (from a lib of standard formats or even construct
your own custom format).

This is much more user friendly than expecting the right default to
exist in glibc, and users to know it. Let alone expecting users to
manage to get a new variant included in glibc.
