I mean that a huge amount of people use the en_US locale as their
default "I want everything in English even though I'm not in the US"
locale so that its probably useless to assume too much from an en_US
locale. On the other hand though if its *not* an en_US locale, e.g.
nl_NL, hi_IN, ja_JP or some such then it would seem fairly reasonable to
assume that the locale means what it says. So... one (odd I suppose)
possibility would be to continue the current logic of hiding either or
both of the CJK and CTL options based on the locale if that locale
Maybe another possibility is to dig around the various system and
LibreOffice locale subsettings a bit deeper to see if there's any
evidence that e.g. enabling CJK/CTL would be useful. i.e. if *any*
locale setting is set to a territory using a CJK language toggle them on
or if e.g. the underlying locale settings are en_US but the paper has
been changed to A4 then they're lying about being in the US so toggle
everything on :-)

Anyone got better bugzilla query king-fu to make the right query for
 There is the en_DK Linux locale which would, to my mind, fit a sort
of "international english" pseudo-locale which would e.g. have A4 paper
and not US letter as default paper, iso YYYY-MM-DD dates, not US date
style. Unclear though what spelling standard would be in use. UK English
with OED spelling rules for -ize, rumoured to be the in-house standard
in many international organizations, would be tempting, i.e. langtag
en-GB-oed. But what currency then, bah...
