I don't know the formal state of this. Looking at it from an X11 Unix point
of view, the <language>-<area> should always be respected. In the unix and
X11 world, we speek of C for being the default language. In most cases it
resembles a kind of English that's understandable by all english speaking
peobles, even the Frensh and Chineese.

Hence, for amaya, if at first the area code is added, it should stay there.
By default, if no language is speccified, it can be just "en"

For the spellchecker and such tools: "en" should be verry light: It should
accept both customize and customise.
