But as the proposal says:

Text may be essentially in Spanish with a large percentage of English loanwords (some of which are naturalized to Spanish grammar), or it may be in English with a large percentage of Spanish loanwords, or in the continuum between them. 

That’s why en- and es- prefixes are necessary, and then spanglis says that it’s contact dialect rather than some other form of mixing.
