Well, the standard says that:

   void imbue(const locale& loc);
Precondition: If the file is not positioned at its beginning and the
encoding of the current locale as determined by a_codecvt.encoding() is
state-dependent, then that facet is the same as the corresponding facet of

So the question is whether facet in default-constructed wifstream is
state-dependent or not. I've tried the following program with g++ and it
prints '0' (not state-dependent). Would be interesting to see what it
prints for you.
