You seem to be disappointed that LibreOffice cannot do something

Please do not confuse me with Urmas.
I, personally, am not disappointed with LO; at least not in the fields we are 
talking about right now. I have never had need for long paragraphs or 
document-specific dictionary.
But then, just because I do not need them, does not mean that they are not 
valid enhancement requests. I only acknowledge that someone might care about 
them and see LO as inferior product.

Or did you mean something else?

*I* meant something else. Not sure about Urmas.

What I was talking about, is simple use case:
I write this sci-fi novel in English. One of characters is named "Valtirix". 
Since "Valtirix" is not English word (after all, he's from planet "Betighyy"), 
spell-checker will underline it. But this is valid word in my novel, so I do 
not want that.
I can add it to custom dictionary, fine.
But again, I do not want to put "Valtirix" by mistake anywhere in letter to my 
grandpa. So, in documents other than my novel, I want this word to be 
underlined, because it is not correct.

What I am talking about, is custom dictionary that might be laid on top of 
language dictionary and enabled on the fly.
And, as I said, I, personally, never actually needed that, so it might be that 
LO is already capable of doing this. But if it is not, then this is valid 
enhancement request.
Best regards
