And here we come to the crux of the matter.  Because _you_ don't plan to
use the new features made available by this, you don't think it should
be implemented, and you're bound and determined to argue against it.

Well, you know what?  You can always set MKDYNAMICROOT=no.  You can
always come up with your own patches to make the system just like you
want it.  Or you can always go run something else.

The fact that you don't want to have more than en_US available is noted.
It carries as much weight as any other user's preference.  And no more.
