i'd rather not have glibc be the arbiter in ugly political quagmires
like this because it'll be a huge time sink and we'll never please

CLDR defines tr_CY as "the Turkish language in Cyprus".  as there are
people who speak Turkish in all of Cyprus, trying to repurpose tr_CY to
mean something other than Cyprus (Northern Cyprus in this case) means
the Turkish speakers not in Northern Cyprus no longer have a locale that
applies to them.  if the self-declared Northern Cyprus want locales that
apply to their territory, then they can push for it in various bodies to
get a new territory created.  then creating locales for them (e.g. if it
were NCY, then we'd have en_NCY, el_NCY, and tr_NCY) is straightforward.
