No one is forcing to use UTF-8 locales, but trying to fix the bugs that 
prevents to use UTF-8 locales if desired or needed.

I second that. Don't add the UTF-8 stuff to CLFS until have a well tested and 
working implementation in LFS.

But IMHO UTF-8 support should be considered a basic functionality for LFS 
(like in any other Linux distro), then +1 for have its support as the default 
in the build, allowing the switch to/from traditional locales from/to UTF-8 
locales via run-time configuration files.
