I agree that it seems a bit excessive. I think it would be enough to run 
all the tests you list with the default (en_US ?) and "one other" 
locale. The default, as it is the most common case and "one other" as it 
represents the equivalence class of locale != default. I think testing 
with more locales should be targeted at specific known problems or 
challenges, like the test<locale>Collation() methods do.
