 @GregLone (and @ocean90),

 Thanks for the hint to some elegant code, that can resolve some or most

 I am still seeing a problem: loading locales and changing them immediately
 is not "good practice", as opposed to loading the correct locale

 Sure, when switching is required, the code can suffice, but the current
 core code can also do a lot.

 Furthermore, I see another (general) problem: plugin locales.

 To illustrate, it often is the case that a (international) company uses
 and/or desires various site languages, one admin panel language (with
 possibilities to switch languages from time to time) AND various plugin

 For instance, english admin and site language, but french language for the
 local shipment provider.

 At this moment, WordPress is only supporting this type of common business
 scenario´s with (in essence) hard coded hacks (of WP core code, in the
 form of additional functions and filters, or of plugin code).

 If one is going to alter locale setting options, one can easily take into
 account that WordPress has to be flexible enough to allow for all possible
