You are making a mountain out of a molehill, IMO. If the so called American
variant is the one most used, I see no point in changing it. Besides,
language is constantly evolving, often in the interest of making words
simpler, and perhaps it's time for the needless double "L" in jewellry to
bid a fond farewell to the OSM scene.
