Glibc-ut8-locales is a small subset of glibc-locales. It's partially
intended for test environments, where using the full set of locales
could be impractical:

$ guix size glibc-utf8-locales
store item                                                       total    self
/gnu/store/bhj5xdwwd2dg770lmlks7hyny8vzjm9x-glibc-utf8-locales-2.24     6.3     
6.3 100.0%
total: 6.3 MiB
$ guix size glibc-locales     
store item                                                       total    self
/gnu/store/hyi7svs0ds79wrcg5l0nr36zzjikqj7i-glibc-locales-2.24     474.5   
474.5 100.0%
total: 474.5 MiB

Almost two orders of magnitude difference!
