Idea
This is a notion of localization more suited to model categories . To quote Hirschhorn:

‘Localizing a model category with respect to a class of maps does not mean making the maps into isomorphisms; instead, it means making the images of those maps in the homotopy category into isomorphisms. Since the image of a map in the homotopy category is an isomorphism if and only if the map is a weak equivalence, localizing a model category with respect to a class of maps means making maps into weak equivalences.’
