There is indeed a proposal out there to create a specifically
American spelling of Spanish, using b for /b/, k for /k/, s for /s/, i
for /i/, g for /g/, and j for /x/ everywhere, and dumping orthographic h.
You can see this (parodied) at http://www.salleurl.edu/~tl06428/ortografia.htm
I doubt these "rreformas" to "el idioma de Kerbante i Kebedo" will

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all. There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
