You can use it as long as you know what you're doing. But since you came
up with such a question I assume that you don't. This locale does not
exist in the standard CentOS distribution:
[[email protected] ~]$ locale -a | grep CP
and setting LANG without having generated and installed the locale
beforehand will break your locale settings.
If my assumptions are incorrect, bear with me.
