I think custom language might be somehow valid point, too. Maybe not entire language, but definitely wordbook. If you write a novel, you don't want you character names to be underlined by spell checker. But when you write article to local newspaper, you want the same words to be marked as mistakes. So there is need for different wordbooks and ability to disable them on the fly. I am not sure how LO handle that.

You seem to be disappointed that LibreOffice cannot do something which it actually achieves very well. Language is a character property, a character style property, and a paragraph style property (but not a paragraph property, although an entire paragraph can be given a language setting using the character property, of course). You can set the language of words, phrases, sentences, whole paragraphs, or whatever differently from their surrounding text in many ways. Providing you have the appropriate dictionaries installed, everything works as you would want. You can even mark the language of your character names as "None (Do not check spelling)".

Or did you mean something else?
