An Anglicianised version would be nice.

An Anglicised New "American" Bible is an oxymoron - Anglicisation (using Oxford and American spelling, "Anglicization") means to make the text conform to British spelling and grammar; that would make it the New British Bible!

I did find much of the American country-bumpkin vernacular in the original NAB to be terrible (such as "dilly-dally" in the Binding of Isaac), but it seems most has been removed in the NABRE (of which the OT still has a lion's share of problems, but at least not that one, which made the Bible read like it took place in Tennessee instead of the Near East).
