What about <input class="spellcheck" />? It surely validates with  
HTML4, and it doesn't get in the way of any other feature. It does  
not really need to be part of the HTML spec either.

I know that according to the current spec, the class attribute should  
carry no meaning whatsoever. But I ask the question: is this worse  
than implying that spell checking should be enabled or disabled based  
on a particular MIME type? The later could break spell checking when  
introducing new text types, say "text/x-markdown", or "text/x- 
mediawiki", for lightweight formatting syntaxes.
