Decouple XBox One dashboard language and location?

Just got my XBox One and was very disappointed not to be able to select the dashboard language (English) independent of location (Finland).

Of course I want to set my real location, but why does that force the language selection as well?

People tend to live abroad in foreign countries but would still like their devices to speak their own language, let alone that by law my country is bi-lingual!

I've used the workaround of setting language as English and location as Ireland, just to have the currency in EUR in the Store... Would like to know if this is ok and will not cause me problems with purchased content later?

Microsoft, how can a restriction this silly exist in 2015?
