I was wondering... Why not adding a special option under dictionaries 
not to use a dictionary at all and disabling the spell check while 
writing? I know that the same can do editing the keyboards file, but you 
can figure that this is quite annoying if you'd like to have more 
keyboard layouts and you should "rewrite" them not to use the spell 
check correction.
