This is a serious waste of time IMHO. en_GB and en_US. Makes zero sense
to have two versions of the same doc.  What about the other zillion en_*
locales? :)

My point is, if a doc is readable, understandable and correct
grammatically and/or otherwise...it is fine. If it ain't broke, don't
fix it. We're not the GEDP :)
