I18N-ISSUE-78: Spellcheck should work in editors [HTML5-prep]

7.6 Spelling and grammar checking
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/editing.html#spelling-and-grammar-checking

The spellcheck attribute currently is limited to user-edited text.

It would be useful to have some way of identifying content that should not be spellchecked in an editor or by an automated spellchecking service.  It would seem most intuitive to use the same attribute for this, but more carefully distinguish between the case where the user agent is dealing with user editable text and non-user-editable text, if necessary.

(This is a similar idea to having a translate attribute which offers a standard way to tell machine translation systems and other translation processes what to translate and what not.)
