No, you can't: See 22.214.171.124 paragraph 17. Basically, you can imbue
a new locale only if the stream is either positioned at the
beginning or if the conversion isn't state dependent. Wide character
encodings are, by definition, state dependent.
However, as pointed out before, this feature isn't necessary at all.
