Could always get the best of both worlds and avoid spelling bikeshedding
by using OED preferred.

Interestingly, or not, USA English spelling is predominently 17th
century English English. UK English was "re-Frenchified" in the early
18th century when all the us were added. So one could say that Color is
old-fashioned spelling and Colour is more modern spelling. With the
corollary that Americans haven't updated their dictionaries properly
since 1800 :-)
