For the "desired locale" aspect, if it's anything more than en-* then we'll probably want a separate bug to support multiple hardcoded layouts with differently localized strings, e.g., "Health & Fitness"

Tawanda, are we supporting anything more than en-*?

We're only supporting en-* for now.

Jess, you expressed concern over locales in Slack. What locales should we go live with?

For reference, here's what locales we're currently targeting:

const locales = ({
        "US": ["en-CA", "en-GB", "en-US", "en-ZA"],
        "CA": ["en-CA", "en-GB", "en-US", "en-ZA"],
})[geo];
Flags: needinfo?(jdavis)

Gameplan is to ship en-US/US geo in 69!

We can expand to en-* and CA geos in 70.
