I guess we should create a version for locale en_CA (or what would be 
the code for Canada). We choose words like the Americans but spell them 
like British.

So I'm not alone! 

I grew up in Brussels (but with my last name, I'm pretty american) so I
mix and match according to perculiar rules. It does not hurt
communication in any way for the sections I write to have a french
flavour to their english. We are a diverse community and write like one.
I don't object in the slightest if your spell check sweep replaces my
words with your spelling but I'm not likely to change the way I type. 

I need to visit Canada since they sound as confused as me! Oh and then I
could create a personal locale en_LOST. :-)
