unfortunately, I'm just an user without coding skills...
so I can't do the job... I hope that some developer could have the
interest and time to try working this out.

your informations are very precious and may help

well, I think we should try to understand and then emulate the
behaviour of the "all languages" acor.dat file which does something  

this dat file contains an autocorrect database which is
applied to every language... each entry of the acor.dat works
 from Arabian to Zulu language

while the other .dat files are restricted to a single language.

i.e.  acor-en_US.dat --> american english
       acor-en_GB.dat --> UK english

the goal would be to create an "acor-en_ALL.dat"
whose entries would be applied only in english text, regardless of the
subvariant (US, GB, AUS etc. etc.)

the same would apply to all variants od Deutsch, Italian, French,
Spanish, Portoguese etc. etc.

as I said the OOo devs that were involved in the autocorrect thing
were "os" and "tl"

I don't know if there's anybody round here who worked with them or knows
