In the Mozilla localization project, we have en-US as the default 
locale, and have an en-GB localization team actually :)

We don't use KDE-/gettext-based L10n though (Mozilla UI does work quite 
differently), so I don't know if e.g. Scribus can go the way to state 
the differences that openly (i.e. there's no simple "en" but only 
"en-US", "en-GB", ...) - it sounds like a good thing to me though (and 
remember that even the strings in the UI ate different, as we have e.g. 
color/colour and such things, so it might very well be worth the effort 
to have two different localizations there.
