            Bug ID: 209772
           Summary: Intl.Locale missing in WebKit
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: sffc at chromium.org

Intl.Locale has reached Stage 4 in TC39 as of February 2020, and the other major browser engines (V8 and SpiderMonkey) have been shipping it for some time.

As usage of Intl.Locale increases throughout the ecosystem, WebKit users will be left behind with legacy polyfills, leading to poorer performance relative to other browsers.  Intl.Locale is a low-level type whose usage we expect to grow rapidly as more and more libraries begin to leverage it.

ICU4C exposes C and C++ APIs that can be used to implement Intl.Locale.  Implementing Intl.Locale is largely a matter of adding the glue between JavaScript and ICU4C, as WebKit already does for other Intl types.
