I support the idea of changing it and think the transition plan you propose could work out. It might not seem a big deal to have some odd American English orthography among the tags, but it really introduces an inconsistency that might lead to more analogous cases, and in the end tagging becomes more complicated for everyone if you can't be sure anymore which writing variant is the valid one without looking it up. 

Similar cases in the past have been drive-through (vs. drive thru), kerb vs. curb and various kinds of centres/centers, all of which are now established with their BE orthography.
