Agreed. But that doesn't really explain why e.g. LANG=en_US also
produces "", while LANG=invalid produces "US-ASCII".

Me too. As far as I can gather, it's a result of setting the Terminal
preferences (particularly the character encoding and 'Set LANG
environment variable on startup' checkbox) in some particular way, on
some versions of OS X, for users in some countries, at some particular
phases of the moon, etc...
