Office 2010: change "Do you want to save? S/N" back to "Do you want to save? Y/N"

Most of the apps I use prompt me when I exit with unsaved work, "Do you want to save?  (Y)es or (N)o".  After years of conditioning from many programs, including all previous versions of Office, someone I am very displeased with has decided to change the prompt for Office 2010 apps to "Do you want to save?  (S)ave or Do(n)'t Save".  This is constantly obnoxious. Does anyone know a way to kill this off so I can use Y/N instead of S/N?

Perhaps it is to make it compatible with Spanish (Si, No)?

I think you'll have to raise it as an unwanted feature with Microsoft, but I wouldn't expect an instant change.
