I'm even less happy with this than with a hard-coded solution, since at
least with the latter, the universe of variants is limited. Anything
that a user can edit can get even more wrongly configured (e.g. they
mispell what is in their config file).

If we want to "spell check" things like this, it is going to be based on
the server's capabilities, even if the checking should happen in the
client. Until such time as we can communicated server-resident
configuration information to all of the clients, I think this is just a
limitation we will have to live with.
