It's not just the US. I flew in Africa for about 18 mos, and they did all kinds of non-standard stuff, and used non-standard radio terminology.

We had an ICAO-type guy, who wanted to use standard phraseology. He was trying to correct the African controllers on the radio, and he always used standard phraseology himself. Sometimes, they couldn't understand him, and his corrections weren't very appreciated.
