Do you Americans sing your anthem only in English ?
Would that prove its official character ?
British music producer Adam Kidron said he just wanted to honor the millions of immigrants seeking a better life in the U.S. when he came up with the idea of a Spanish-language version of the national anthem.
"I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English," President Bush told reporters Friday, "and I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English, and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English," he said.

I think that's entirely rational and sensible, also I don't see that it could harm anyones cultural identity either - you can still have your heritage language too.
OK - here comes the sarcasm part:
Could we have it as a prerequisite for ATS too?
Can Americans actually adopt "proper" English, ie: that of the Queen HRH Elizabeth.
Can Americans please say Aluminium, not Aluminum etc, etc, etc, ad nauseum.
