This has been raised on the CSS list a few times. It is relevant there 
because you do alot of guessing in CSS (at least when starting out...). 
What is bad: color is used instead of colour, but gray is used instead 
of grey. I don't think it is a major issue for doc files, but if people 
do hack URLs (I agree that usability studies show that people do not 
usually hack URLs), then it could be annoying.

I just wanted to bring this up. I am not sure the lang standardization 
would be better than not for cocoon-docs...
