I just imagined there might be a W3C global policy?  If there is a main
editor identified for each document then letting them choose (consistently
within one document) seems a fair compromise otherwise.

And yes, I meant British English and American English, not English vs.
American.  (No offence intended to either one - or to any other English
variation that might exist around the world :-) )
