In the locale, there might be even differences in thousands seperator!

There are very few differences between _CW and _BQ but a lot between _AW and _CW.

E ekspreshon di emoshon, alegria tiki biaha por keda kaptá di un forma spontáneo asin’aki. Tyeisha Bernabela a keda koroná djasabra anochi komo Reina di Tumba Hubenil.

Hopi a subi lama diadomingo pa e Fuikdag na Aruba 13 Januari y a bay te oranan di anochi den area di Zeewijk pabou di e tankinan di e refeneria Valero. Por a tuma nota di waverunner, yate, botonan chikito y mas. Esaki a cuminsa bira un tradicion tambe na Aruba unda amistadnan ta topa otro.[gallery ids=

diadomingo - sjadumingu (sunday)
cuminsa - kuminsa (to start)
tradicion - tradishon (tradition)
emocion - emoshon (emotion)

So, even the weekdays are different, so that asks for a sepearte locale in my opinion.

Apart from the names of the week, are the differences so great that they shouldn't be handled in the same translation? I mean for example, would the translation of "Enter the name for the new library." be different for the three?

I'm not sure on the technicalities but, in my language, if people in Canada wanted to use it, they could select Gaelic (Scotland) for the interface language but Canada for the currency etc.

But the weekdays might be tricky that way. Thoughts, anyone?

Just to make one thing clear: pap_CW and pap_AW (and pap_BQ) are different 'languages' just like nl_NL and nl_BE are. The locales are different, for instance what 'ku' is in pap_CW is 'cu' in pap_AW. The days of the week differ.
