Sorry, but how could the `desktop experience' be affected by the
language of the original strings? The user will see the translated
strings only, so only they need to be consistent for a 'consistent
desktop experience'.

Of course, I agree that it will make the life easier for translators to
use one consistent spelling and terminology in the source strings across
the GNOME desktop. And en_US seems to be the spelling in use in most
