I think eventually the solution will have to be simliar to the one with 
English: one set for generic American Spanish, and another for those who 
subscribe to the European supremacy of la Academia Real.

Just like American and British English, each dialect sounds strange and 
uncomfortable to speakers of the other.

There is, in fact, a generic Latin American accent.  See Telemundo's 
news announcers for examples.
