I'm confused: what is "locale-independent behavior" in this context?
Do you mean the ability to request a collation specific for the German
locale when your current system locale is something else?  If so, this
is not locale-independent behavior as I understand it.  If you mean
something else, please elaborate.

Why do you think so?  The code calls strcoll even on Windows.
