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".
