This may seem petty, but is there a specific need or demonstrable pretext
for the use of Americanised 'z' over the traditional 's' in the term

I know there is little chance for the English S to win here, resulting in *
normalise*, but I want to support the noble cause of supporting the European
English language (I am an Australian German).

What about both?

I can't think of where use of 'z' over 's' in a similar way grated on my
nerves in the STL or even the C lib. Is there an equivalent term that avoids
the issue entirely?
