Is it just me (it could very well be) or does the BUGS section of the 
setlocale man page not explicitly state this?

The only limitation I see mentioned is:

        The current implementation supports only the "C" and "POSIX" locales for
        all but the LC_CTYPE locale.

Which doesn't seem to apply here, and:

        LC_NUMERIC and LC_TIME are personal choices and should
        not be wrapped up with the other categories.

Should not be wrapped up _or_ cannot be wrapped up? ;) ... this seems to imply 
that LC_NUMERIC can infact be used for ... something.

Am I wrong?
