Perhaps we could somehow provide a profile that would have to be linked
to ~/.config/guix/current?

The ~root/.guix-profile that comes with the binary tarball has the
advantage of providing ‘glibc-utf8-locales’ and the corresponding
‘GUIX_LOCPATH’.  It would be nice to keep it somehow.

That requires some thought…
