Well irrelevant from the point of view of encoding characters but my compatriot should understand that “Standardization” is not something about what the English thinks or says . So far as science and technology is concerned the English (British) standards are already obsolete.

I bet that you call my language Angrezi or something similar in your language, rather than Ingliś. Are you planning to get all of the millions of speakers of your language to call English by its "proper name"?

Most likely he will be glad for his pay and get on with his job without worrying about something unimportant like this.

At this point, I think I have to make a plea: Sarasvati, spare us.
