That's the purpose..
It should be selectable as paragraph and character attribution in
a document for spell-checking purposes.

Adding arbitrary dictionary languages (as long as they strictly follow
the BCP 47 language tag specification) works since quite a while (2014?)
already. New(er) in the mentioned mechanism is the ability to add
a language also to the CTL or CJK sections where previously it was only
possible to add to the (misnamed) "Western" section, and give the
language list entries a proper UI name instead of showing just the
language tag.

Note however that such extension language can't be set as default
language for all documents under Tools -> Options -> Languages.
