I thought about it but think it needs to be separate:
1. The name postcode (not zip code) is used outside the US.
2. Didn't want to accidentally break any existing code that uses mx:ZipCodeValidator
3. Interfaces are different you pass , in mine you need to set the format or formats, in mx:ZipCodValidator
you set if you want to validate US or Canadian postcodes. 
4. Existing resource strings are not generic enough (used for errors)

But I'm not against trying to merge it into one class.

It can validate US style postcodes and one of the unit test does so.
