I really do not remember what the original rational was. I do remember
that it goes back to before the move to Apache. I suspect it was a
convenience factor. This has been the extension distributed with the
en-US distribution of OpenOffice for quite some time.

As far as having individual extensions done that would need to be
discussed with the maintainers of the dictionaries. Remember that they
are distributed s extensions and as such the project has no direct
control over them.

If any others have a longer memory than mine as to why the five
dictionaries were combined feel free to add to this.
