I'm afraid of it, too. (It seems, Microsoft has opened his spell checking
so maybe it's possible to use it for spell checker developments. If I right
remember, some years ago this API documentation was a product sold by MS).
Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome use dictionary extensions created by the
users on their add-on sites, so you can add also Kikongo dictionary to them.

If I right think, as an extension to the (future?) Kikongo LibreOffice
localization, you can add your dictionary to the dictionaries/ LibreOffice
repository. This way, Kikongo localization packages of LibreOffice will
contain the spelling and hyphenation dictionaries, too.

Best regards,
