libosinfo generates this:

    <component xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" versionScope="nonSxS" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" language="neutral" processorArchitecture="x86">

(though not 100% sure that fr-FR is a correct language ;)
You can check the whole xml file it generates with:
osinfo-install-script windows.iso --config=l10n-language=fr-FR --config=reg-product-key=XXXX
