Sorry, Erik. I don't see why American English should follow Dutch rules any 
more than it should follow German rules. Middle way. There are in fact no 
actual "rules" that have intrinsic value, only conventionalisms that are 
designed to take choice and thinking away from individuals and make others 
obey arbitrary authorities.
