Somewhat in a similar vein, as a native American English speaker, I have wondered if it would be desirable for the editors to contain a feature that would pop up a suggestion or warning, while tagging with an American English word or phrase, which would specify the British English equivalent.  Or maybe there's a wiki page that lists some common equivalents?  Even more basic, is it stated anywhere in the wiki that British English terms are to be used?  I know that's the policy, but I was wondering if it's documented.

All that I have seen are notes and warnings in various pages such as kerb. I think JOSM covers this issue with preset warnings, "tag is not in presets."

Note: As a policy OSM uses British English terms for most tags in preference to North American English. In this case kerb rather than curb.
