Batch-mate exists in IE because class-mate and room-mate exist in all varieties of English and collectorate exists in IE because directorate exists throughout the English speaking world. The rules that can and do generate room-mate and directorate will also generate batch-mate and collectorate. Comparable illustrations from syntax and phonology are easy to find, but perhaps it is sufficient to point out here that there are no structural features, at any level of grammatical description, that characterize all “non-native” varieties of English to the exclusion of all “native” varieties.

I have talked about norms as if we all know what we are talking about. That is not the case, however. Since linguistically speaking it makes little sense to define norms prescriptively, norms can only be descriptive generalizations of how people in a given community speak. However, especially for the types of communities we may wish to empower with endo-normative norms, we don’t know all that much about how they speak. We know some features of their speech, mostly the ones that are eyecatching, such as codeswitching and deviations from the outside norms, but we don’t know how systematic their codeswitching is, how systematic the ‘deviations’ (that is, their innovative or changed features) and how systematic their use of the structures shared with the outside norm.
