Good point. It shouldn't replace all English. But
spoken English is a subset of Standard English, and
breaks down into different dialects by region and
nation and function. Plain Language and/or Simplified
English is one standard.

Your sentiment is one that many here will share, which
is that we do not want to be required to write in a
limited language. That's why the original poster
recommended it as a resource, not a standard. I think.
