You seem to assume that YaST developers enjoy removing functionality
just for the fun of it.

I did a little bit of research and it looks like that option was removed
as part of a needed adaptation to systemd. Unfortunately, systemd has
changed a lot how the locale management works. Adapting YaST to it may
have consequences that are not obvious to everybody at first glance.
Which is quite different from "absolutely no reason for removing it".

Sometimes (not always), things can be re-engineered to find a way to
bring some old functionality back, but in a way that is
systemd-compliant and avoids side effects. Unfortunately, that's more
complex than "should be re-inserted".
