@t: I agree. I suspect the LEO team might understandably give that change a relatively low priority, but if you'd like to suggest it I'll be happy to back you up. From a safe distance. *g*
@Frank: You're welcome. (-: It may help to know that most of his 'variants' are so infrequent or substandard that they can safely be ignored; just stick with the first spelling given. A few exceptions:
Preferred spellings that he mistakenly lists as second in order or omits:
oenology, eurhythmy, accoutrement, rappelled/ing, camomile; BS, PhD, MS (a relatively recent change in usage); (last but most important) all right.
Variants that are indeed used/accepted:
caesarean, dieresis, sulphur/ous, burnt (adj.), dreamt (after 'never'), kneeled, leapt, alit, fitted (transitive), wedded (adj.), sepulcher, glamour, Rumanian, analog, catalogue, dialog, advisor, faggot, chile (the pepper), woollen, kidnaped/er, garotte, omelet, any more, cafe, entrée, axe, Britishism, crawfish, tsar, tzar, doughnut, carat, catsup, Romansch.
A few other AE ones I didn't notice on his list:
annex, briar, coeval, dwarfs, hiccup, impanel (substandard variant), intern, math, pudgy, pygmy, shrimp (pl.), snicker, sports (sing.), -ward (afterward, forward, toward, upward, etc.), wharves.
