All those ones you mention surely did their part in the days when all 
was needed was a coarse-ishly delimited set of basic _culture_-related 
tags (like, currency, thousands, and date format). In days where the 
more and more fine distinctions are being set up in the _language_ area 
(and more and more folks sort of get their share of ramplight from 
those), not quite so.
