Spellcheck and autocorrect events

Johannes said elsewhere that this topic is worth considering - is it possible to get access to spellcheck and autocorrect at some level of detail deeper than turning them on or off.

It seems that the first thing to do is write up what you want to do with that access, and then figure out what kind of access that implies getting…

An obvious one is knowing that a spellchecker *wants* to correct a word, and looking in a custom dictionary. For example in various Yandex services we use a russian/english input method, where ghbdtn can actually be recognised as привет and цувтуывфн as wednesday. (This saves switching keyboards for simple stuff). But my spellchecker doesn't pick that up, so it tries to do all kinds of odd and rather annoying things instead.
