Your idea and example are fine, but it should also be clear that the  
spell checker should not assume this to be an input for English text  
only:

     <label lang="en">
       Name: <input accept="text/plain">
     </label>

Very often the interface of a web application isn't available in all  
languages. but that shouldn't preclude people from writing text in  
other languages in the form. So if Mikko's idea is mentioned in the  
spec it should be made clear that the input language expectation  
isn't inherited from ancestor elements.
