Steps to reproduce:

I went to Settings → Language and assumed I could change the locale and the language there seperately.

Actual results:

There is only an option to change the language and the locale follows that language setting.

Expected results:

I like to use American English as the language for my smartphone, but I live in the Netherlands, which is why I would like a Dutch locale. This could easily be fixed if it were possible to select the language and locale independently.
Could you explain what you mean be locale?

In short locale controls the setting for the decimal separator, paper format, 24 or 12 hours clock and date format. For example, I want to keep using American English, but I want to use the Dutch 24 hour clock rather than the US 12 hour clock, and a dd/mm/yyyy date notation rather than mm/dd/yyyy.
