Well, I'd say Americans spell some words in a funny way... And yep, they
bother, I use en_GB and I see the differences.

I am not generally opposed to anaconda be able to set differently
language and all other locales. Just instead of screen with
Language/Keyboard have screen with Location (or Locales or
st.)/Language/Keyboard and you are IMO set. No need to tweak each locale
setting differently, but treat language setting differently from other
locale settings is probably needed.
