Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Pref is `javascript.use_us_english_locale` ;)
 Also we need something `international` as `UTC`, but not `us_english` for
 american idiots only, like `12/17/2012` instead of dd.mm.yyyy or even
 yyyy.mm.dd, `3:00:42 PM` instead of 15:00:42, and so on.
 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_System_of_Units System SI]
 has all we need.
