While fixing #5967 I noticed a few things.
- We use U.S., which is a bit old-fashioned. "US" would probably be better (also recommendation of style guides like for The Economist.) Same for U.K.
- We have the following in the en locale, which is not very consistent for the US and UK:
The format of this listing is long/short combined, then long/short uncombined
en_US "U.S. English", "U.S. English", "English (United States)", "English (U.S."); en_GB "British English", "British English", "English (United Kingdom)", "English (U.K.)");
I think the following would be better:
en_US "American English", "US English", "English (United States)", "English (US"); en_GB "British English", "UK English", "English (United Kingdom)", "English (UK)");
That would involved adding alt="short" values for "en_GB", and "en_US".
