Thanks Ariel for the useful data. By crossing it with data from
we can conclude that 96% of the localized full versions of 3.3.0 come with at least a spell-checking dictionary for 
their main language. So removing dictionaries does seem a scary option.

Note that full builds were only provided for languages that had attained 
a satisfactory ( >80% ) percentage of interface translation. The other 
languages relied on language packs only, but my concern is mostly for 
users who download their localized version of as an 
"all-in-one" package. The 96% figure above is 22/23, where the missing 
one is the "cs_CZ" dictionary, the only case of a full build missing a 
dictionary. And of course I am not able to evaluate the quality of 
included dictionaries.
