That's a definite possibility; see lisp/language/european.el: it
already has language environments defined for a few Latin languages,
such as German and Spanish.

I don't know what is the best default for Italian.  However, please
note that by setting LANG to something like it.iso8859-15, a user
tells Emacs to use Latin-9 rather than the default.  (At least that's
how this is supposed to work; I didn't try.)
