So that's why Americans abandoned Brit spellings

When you spell words "the American way", you don't have to work so hard parsing (and pronouncing) compounds like "Centrelink" (the name of an Australian government agency). That is, you won't ever pronounce "Centerlink" like /cen-treh-link/.

So the question is, is this by by design?
