This is not relevant in most cloud images and in very, very few
containers. Can we make the dependency optional in some way?
Not really. localed is simply linked to libxkbcommon.so, so it will
not run without. Anyway, libxkbcommon.rpm is 260kb, so some potential
(complicated) scheme to avoid a dependency simply does not seem worth
