From the user viewpoint: if you ask me what language I post in, I'm going to say "English," not "US English." And not just because I'm not thinking in dialect terms, but because it's the wrong level of specificity: there's a bunch of New York in my English, along with some random UK usages I picked up from friends and reading. If I'm looking for things posted in English, I want it to find posts by people who define their English as Canadian or New Zealand or British, not just U.S. English. And if I wanted Spanish, I wouldn't have a preference for Dominican over Castilian or vice versa.
