I can't speak to the *spell issue, but there was (and is) no
alternative to maintaining a fork of Emacs that satisfies the
technical goals of the XEmacs developers and the Lucid developers
before them, because some of those technical goals (such as modularity
in code and in distribution) are unacceptable to GNU.  It's not wasted
resources, therefore, although the burden imposed on third party
developers is unfortunate.

I suppose something similar is true of the *spell developers.
