At least in the Windows implementation (WebKit/WebKit source base),
the spell checker is implemented on the client side as a delegate

I wrote up a few notes on the topic

What would be the advantage in placing the spell checker in WebCore,
as opposed to the relatively agnostic approach used via the WebKit
API?  Is there a performance benefit, or a means of hooking into some
other part of the system not currently served by the existing spelling
