The point I was trying to make was that it didn't really matter if
translations were in a different flavour of English as long as the whole
program uses that same flavour.

I write and use British English all day, and in all my programs
(although in most of them, it's not really noticeable), and will keep on
doing so. People that find that a program is not properly translated for
their flavour of English (say, en_US users) can then translate the
program as usual.

I'd also like to note that the use of British English [1] should not
(and I don't think does) hamper the ability of the i18n team to
translate into different languages.
