Probably "mixed", as there is only one set of English-language debconf
templates for d-i, and I don't believe there's any standard being
imposed; and even in general on the installed system, setting en_XX as
your locale rarely changes the displayed text compared to the C locale.
As to which en_XX ought to be the default when choosing "Other", I would
expect en_GB to make the most sense as that's the variant most likely to
be preferred by English speakers outside the US.
