These are matters of taste.  Practically speaking, any free software
license is probably line.  Any GPL-compatible license is certainly

I can't stop you, but CC-zero is a pain in the neck because its text
is very long. Is "Public Domain"-like your goal? Anyway, we've gone
off-topic for this bugtracker --- feel free to contact me and Thorsten
by email and cc some mailing list of your choice and we can guide you
through the process of choosing a license that matches your intent.

If you just want a default for locales in glibc, LGPL-2.1+ ("the license
of glibc") is probably what most people were assuming the locales already
had.  A license notice can look like this:
