I was trying to determine if you had identified a Use Case for exposing 
this piece of metadata via the Widget object in the TWI spec (and I see 
you think "no").

Anyhow, coming back to the proposal - as I understand it, it would plug 
an interop hole in the CR where if the UA has no locale set, it is left 
to the UA (i.e. non-deterministic) as to what - if any - localized data 
the UA will use. The proposal does indeed make that behavior 
deterministic but since old UAs would ignore this new attribute, the 
proposal would break UAs  based on the CR. Is this correct?
