Way out of scope for the way our bundled dictionaries/thesaurus are produced
and maintained. Have a look at the Hunspell, and Lightproof projects and
restrictions on how word lists can be altered.

The "User-defined dictionaries" model Heiko described provides framework for
customized (individually or by some collaborative work group) lexical aids
without imposing a non-maintainable data structure of alternates.

Presently the LanguageTool.org project provided extension supports rules based
checking--one can write their own for their custom dictionary needs.

If the Grammarly project ever spins up an extension for AOO/LO that would be a
treat for using its "context-optimized word choice" but again these are
extensions and not something applicable to LibreOffice core, and hooks
extension authors need for GUI interface are provided in the SDK.
