The association between API functions and LC_* variables is fixed by POSIX,
and we won't change it. So the formatting and the week+month names come
from LC_TIME.

But with the CLDR-XML based approach, the user can modify the xml file
of the locale his LC_TIME variable points to, then rerun the cooker (if
necessary), and get the desired behaviour.
