I don't know.  Why don't those programs do that today?

If you are saying those programs all have bugs, then I find it hard to
believe, and anyway, it isn't Emacs's job to fix bugs all over the

However, if enough use cases will be reported which show that indeed
many programs invoked by Emacs work better with that setting in the
environment, I will change my mind.  No such examples materialized
yet, AFAIR.
