I think it's reasonable that someone might write "trunk" instead of 
"boot" and "cookie" instead of "biscuit," and put the comma inside the 
quotes as I just did, and commit other American barbarisms, and still 
use OED spelling. So I will argue against any attempts to restrict the 
Prefix of this variant from "en" to "en-GB".
