I'm not sure you are understanding me. What I am saying is that
operations such as "convert to uppercase" on Unicode strings are
locale-independent, and thus such operations need not and should not be
part of the locale interface.
It seems perhaps you are referring to the string algorithm library that
was reviewed some time ago.
