Hi Angela,

My spell checker says both is OK in en-US, in doubt, the RFC Editor will 
fix this.

In my working copy, I changed the text to consistently use the US 
spelling (note that it's not clear that we will submit a new draft 
before it gets onto the IESG agenda, in which case, again, it would be 
up to the RFC Editor to fix this).

I see your point, but making the example paths longer would cause 
problems with the width of the artwork in the examples (which is 
restricted to 72 characters because of the text format). Thus we have 
chosen to use a consistent and short naming scheme.
