This topic is out of scope for www-style, please RTFM:
http://www.w3.org/2001/06/manual/#Spelling

Per that document:

"Please send your comments to the public mailing list spec-prod@w3.org"

That being said, IMHO there were a few good responses in this thread,
and lacking an official W3C-wide wiki to capture them, I've collected
them into FAQs on the microformats wiki, which adopts the above-cited
W3C "en-US" spelling policy.

Indeed. Congratulations to the original localization troll. You
spawned a sufficiently long and low s/n thread that I am unsubscribing
from www-style.

Here's to hoping a search company solves the public email list search
problem (with time-sorted/threaded results) in the future.
