Acronyms should be ignored on spell-checking.
How de we define accronyms? Words with all letter in uppercase?
I understand the idea behind this of course, but on the other hand, it will prevent doing spelling checkin on PIECES OF TEXT WRITTEN ENTIRELY IN UPPERCASE LIKE THIS.
A possible solution: spell checking generates rules of different types for words in uppercase such as:
MORFOLOGIK_RULE_EN_US -> normal words, in lower case (ex: errror)
MORFOLOGIK_RULE_ALL_UPPERCASE_EN_US -> mispelled words written all uppercase (ex: ERRROR)
MORFOLOGIK_RULE_START_UPPERCASE_EN_US -> mispelled words written with first letter in uppercase (ex: Error)
So user can then decide which rules to enable/disable. Default may enable all of them as today.
Disabling rule MORFOLOGIK_RULE_ALL_UPPERCASE_EN_US will avoid false errors for accronyms.
Disabling rule MORFOLOGIK_RULE_START_UPPERCASE_EN_US will avoid false errors for proper nouns.
But I'm not not sure whether that's a good idea to do this.
>> So user can then decide which rules to enable/disable.

If we add a rule like MORFOLOGIK_RULE_ALL_UPPERCASE_EN_US, this should be disabled by default. In my humble opinion, for normal usage, upper-case documents are very rare.
