How about automating switches in spellchecking languages? The main 
language would be chosen as is; the selection of additional dictionaries 
could be triggered by the corresponding markup command: e.g. 
\language{german} in Latex, \language[de] in Context, etc. There could 
be something like %language=de for cases where the language-switching 
command is masked by some other package.

Just an idea that would keep things easy to use and leave the interface
