Yes, we already specify which locales/languages we support:

%packages --excludedocs --instLangs en:es:ar:pl:pt_BR:pt:it:fr:ht:el:mn:mr_IN:th:am_ET:km_KH:ne_NP:ur_PK:rw:ja:de:tr:te:ps:fa_AF:si

but I don't particularly like the idea of excluding them all and then
forcing every deployment to run the customization stick on every laptop.
We need to do better than that.
