There is obviously no "need" to force the use of one spelling variant or
another. However, I think it is good style to consistently use either
American or British English. To pick the first example from Google, the
FreeBSD documentation group do this:

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/writing-style.html

And they face many of the same challenges we do as far as contributors
from different regions of the world.
