True, but I don't know that we usually document the denotation of tags in
terms of deltas (x = y with this difference), and such a statement assumes
that "British spelling" is somewhere defined. There will be a lot of users
wanting to know what en-oed is intended to mean who won't know what the
rules of British spelling are. Thus, IMO the intended denotation of en-oed
must be documented fully.
