[whatwg] Spellchecking mark III

The following sentences are *commands* that refer to browser actions:

	Let automatic completion be turned _on_. (command)
	Let spell checking be turned _on_. (command)

The following sentences are *descriptions* that refer to user actions:
	Let this content _be_ editable. 
(description what happens if the user wishes to edit this content)
	Let this element _be_ draggable. 
(description what happens when the user attempts to drag)

Therefore I insist on having spellcheck="on".  Spellcheck="true" is
misleading because spellcheck is a command for the browser.


P.S.: While I am immensely grateful to you for rescuing "referrer", I shall
nevertheless criticize you mercilessly for prescribing spellcheck="true".
So be warned ;-)
