As someone who is half-American and spent 16 years of her life there, I resent the above paragraph.
I can understand changing slang and spellings in British novels published in the states, because slang is different across the pond and many Americans may not understand it, or may have the same word for a different thing.
Yes, I would.
Actually, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" is one of those extremely misleading titles as well because the series contains nothing alchemy-related at all.

Awesome idea... Wish I had a title ready for working.
Someone alert the mods. This needs to happen.
