Thanks for correcting me. It seems, I missed some decisions and had to late a 
look on

At least, it is irritating, if configure says, it is experimental, and so it 
is not default. On the other hand the windows installer sets it, as Andreas 

My opinion is, at least for german it is experimental,  it is incomplete, it 
is nonfunctional. For a long time there were no activity on and I see other problems, 
made by german fiscal bureaucracy, for which I do not see a quick solution. I 
fear, to fullfil the requirements of the german fiscal bureaucracy for VAT 
would mean a bigger rework of the tax module. Any volunteers?

I am not sure, but I assume, setting the flag in the windows installer was 
caused by patch 16503, which IMHO should never have been applied on trunk - 
at least as long as locale tax is not working. After this patch SKR04 
requires --enable-locale-specific-tax.

So, I would suggest, to revert patch 16503 to remove this dependency.
