This isn't just a styling function though. User's expect a rich text editor to override the browser default context menu to provide things like properties for images, lists, tables etc and the other stuff usually found in a rich text editor's context menu. However, once that is done, the browser's built-in spelling suggestions are no longer available, effectively losing support for inline spell checking.
