Bringing up system dialogs is scary/surprising and could be annoying.
I'm waiting for the day when a security vulnerability is reported for
a system spellchecker. -- And don't laugh, the open source spell
checkers we've used have some really crummy code w/ a rather poor
track record when it comes to buffers and inputs. Thankfully so far
most attacks against them have been by dictionary vendors instead of
 we still get bugs from people complaining about while(1)alert("boo");
