Enabling or disabling spell checking doesn't change the functionality of
an input. It can still be used to submit arbitrary text to the server. But
misspelled words in an input with spellchecking enabled are underlined
with a wavy red line (and the underlining style could even be changed by
CSS), and that's presentation.
