As mentioned above I know about patches, but that doesn't really matter,
this was just an example. Another example could be that I make a
snapshot/export intended for a certain customer in his language.
OK, dates are not that hard to understand, even in a different
language, but you get what I mean.

It could also be a version mixup. We started with an 1.1 svn and
are now working with 1.2, same for tsvn. Maybe the locale was
only added in the 1.2 release or was wrong before. Also funny is:
When I look at the changelog (which include the date of the change
as expanded with the then actual svn version) I see the weekdays
with both 2 or 3 characters. I think the German days are with 2
whereas the English days are abbreviated with 3 characters.

Yeah, question still remains. But from the answers so far I
take it as a "no", as I had thought previously. So to append
another question: Could something like this be planned for the
future? Maybe as part of some bigger localization changes?
