In an ideal world, C.UTF-8 would be valid on its own, yes (not C as it
lacks UTF-8 support).

Unfortunately we don't live in this ideal world and a lot of software
unfortunately hardcode en_US.UTF-8 as their fallback locale when no
other "standard" locale (as in CC.UTF-8 or CC_LL.UTF-8) is set.

That's why Ubuntu always ships with language-pack-en installed, whatever
language option you may choose at install time.
