Regarding the value of "de" versus "DE_DE", you may also see examples using "de-de", "de_DE", and other variants.  I'm not clear that there is a single standard that everyone is to adhere to, which has led to the "too much flexibility" problem you mention.



The most current standard I know of is RFC 5646 (http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc5646.txt), which uses the hyphen but mandates neither a specific capitalization rule nor the use of the country code. I've never actually seen a published standard that used the underscore, but I have seen it in practical use.
