Correct Spelling of WordPress - Spellcheck in Editor

As many of you already know that in Theme Review Guidelines we have relatively new requirements called Correct Spelling of WordPress:

Correct Spelling of WordPress

  • Themes are REQUIRED to spell "WordPress" correctly in all public facing text: all one word, with both an uppercase W and P.

This is great and IMO the way it should be. WordPress editor is not public facing text, but it would make perfect sense if the spellcheck would not correct "WordPress" and make suggestions like:

  • Word Press
  • Word-Press
  • Wardpress
  • Depress
  • etc

Sure we can ignore this, but many users and authors too don't know the correct spelling and if they did we wouldn't even have this in TR guidelines at all.

Am I asking too much or this really does make sense?

P.S. The requirement was noted by Jane while back.

What about WORDPRESS, is this correct?
