True, but less necessary.  The Americanization is mostly to have one
language to base translations off of.  That way we won't have
mistranslations due to US/GB differences.  Also notice that the site
suggests always using SI units, so for units an en_US.po patch could be
required (not likely to be the case in Dia, though).
