Actually, how bad this idea is depends strongly on the languages used.For example, there is no danger of such a mistake when mixing Russianand English in messages, because their alphabets are completelydisjoint. Same goes, I imagine, for Chinese/English etc.At the same time, the language mixing is not uncommon at all,especially in outsourcing shops. So, while not in any way urgent, anoption to use multiple dictonaries at once would be quite useful.
