Yep. That's primarily for emacs' benefit, which parses the locale env
variables itself instead of using setlocale(LC_CTYPE, ""), thereby
missing out on Cygwin's default locale.
that if LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and LANG are all either unset or empty, the
implementation-dependent default locale shall be used. For Cygwin 1.7,
the default locale uses UTF-8 and not ASCII as assumed by emacs. It
works correctly in vim.)
