I don't think so.  "de" is iso-8859-1.  "address@hidden" is iso-8859-15.  The

Does not change the locale definitions magically.  Here are the
entries for "de" from /usr/share/i18/SUPPORTED on my system:

de_AT.UTF-8 UTF-8
de_AT ISO-8859-1
address@hidden ISO-8859-15
de_BE.UTF-8 UTF-8
de_BE ISO-8859-1
address@hidden ISO-8859-15
de_CH.UTF-8 UTF-8
de_CH ISO-8859-1
de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8
de_DE ISO-8859-1
address@hidden ISO-8859-15
de_LU.UTF-8 UTF-8
de_LU ISO-8859-1
address@hidden ISO-8859-15
