Actually, there *is* something about it:

which for "Spelling" says:


    Use standard American English spelling rules, see the American
    Heritage Dictionary for guidelines.

This might be style guide for writing documentation, but I believe
it's equally applicable to GUI (I mean, it would be strange to have
British English in GUI, and American in documentation) -- perhaps
this belongs in HIG/Language section (though, I don't know if it does
fit there).

I'm not trying to argue, just point out the "reference".
