I tried it as I wrote tex-ispell.el but I didn't understand flyspell.el
enough back then.  Maybe I give it a new try, but I wouldn't hold my
breath for that.

I can only tell for hunspell: It has built-in support for skipping of
many macro arguments and environments[1], but:

  a) It is not complete (and probably will never be)
  b) It cannot work for user defined macros/environments, and this is
  where AUCTeX/ispell shine: AUCTeX can parse user defined
  macros/environments and add them automatically to
  c) Another advantage of `ispell-tex-skip-alists' is that one can write
  a function and put that in `ispell-tex-skip-alists' for certain
  macros/environments: That gives us a lot of flexibility to precisely
  skip or check.

Best, Arash
