It does not hurt to run the same localedef command twice, no.

You might be able to use the same technique that's being used for the 
keymap right now to handle this; create a new file in the config 
directory that contains the extra localedef command(s) that's commented 
out by default, then update the README file to have the user edit this 
file if they need one (or all) locales added.
