    You load a file, edit a line, try saving.  Emacs complains that it feels
    insecure doing so even though the line you edited is perfectly fine.

Sorry, I do not follow you.  Are you proposing a change in current
Emacs behavior?  If so, what change would that be?

    A recurring phenomenon in that direction is generation of number
    presentations that can no longer be processed because of being written
    under the influence of an LC_NUMERIC setting developers did not expect.

I am lost here.  Can you present a specific example?
Do you have a bug to report?
