IMHO, intelligence should properly reside in ispell.el since emacs has
all the infrastructure to (dis)ambiguate associations between codings
and other aspects, and since en/decoding occurs on i/o.

if something is hard to enforce that just means you need to have
intelligence in the heuristics that comprise the workarounds in the
error handling (or, omitting this, suffer a buggy ispell experience).
that doesn't seem like much fun to program.  better to make clients
sweat the specifications than the non-specifications.
