Well there is a standardized English so I don't know what you are talking about. I think you mean reformed English but I am not sure. Clarification is definitely needed.

He never said anything about making it official, you could speak in terms of trends rather than formalities.

It already does and its a very elitist system. One dialect if English isnt worse or better than another objectively. But things about your intelligance are assumed if you speak in a certain dialect that isnt the so called "standard" which is usually the dialect spoken by those who are wealthier, in power, or the majority. Making the standardization of language more official would only further disenfranchize people who are already kept at the bottom rungs of society.
