If we were to specify one, I would have to say we should standardise
on en_US.  Like it or not, that is the lingua franca in the CS world
(I'd also admit that most of the extra 'u' in words like "behaviour"
are my typoes, not even coming from a conscious decision to choose

I'd appreciate "typofix" patches to address genuine typoes like
"s/filesytem/filesystem/" done separately, so that we do not even
have to get into language bikeshedding.  Even if we did decide to
stick to en_US, the typofix patches and en_US patches should be
separate to ease reviews.
