What you are doing is unsupported and relying on internal implementation
details not to change.

understood that all along, was trying out my luck if there was any better solution, with the arrangements we had, we did not have to worry about what locale the end user was using.

Each new version of glibc is tied to the binary locale data that it produces
and the same problem applies to static applications which will need to fall
back on C/POSIX locales because they will be unable to load the newer
format of locale data.

What is recommended way forward ?

Provide a minimal locale-archive with just the languages you support, and
that should only be ~3MiB per language.

We never set a limit here, but I guess we now need to.

Thank you
