What should/may user agents do with it?

Note that this semantic can be expressed using WAI-ARIA.

<mark aria-invalid="spelling">speling</mark>

In this case:

"User agents SHOULD inform the user of the error. Application authors
SHOULD provide suggestions for corrections if they are known. Authors
MAY prevent form submission when an associated form element has its
aria-invalid attribute set to true."
