There's no rule against either American or Commonwealth usage on Wikimedia projects. Maybe you should stop your petty bigotry.
"Follow the spelling patterns of the subject of the article or that of the first author of the article to avoid issues." For European articles, that means British English.
English is not an official language in Greece. Your extrapolation of that rule to apply to anywhere in Europe is pretty arbitrary. Does this mean that all articles about an OAS member must conform to American usage? Those two situations seem pretty symmetrical to me.
It has long been standard to use UK English in European articles. Assuming "an OAS" is an Organization of American States member then I would certainly support use of American English there. You're pushing it a bit by the time you reach the extreme south, mind. Europe is much smaller. That said, I wouldn't be opposed to anyone who chose to make US English the choice for the whole lot, except for any where there is some reason why an alternative form that might be better (I don't pretend to know the ideal for every country). Without doubt, any North American country should be getting the US English treatment.
Never-mind, I misunderstood the issue because I only saw the final version.
