Hmm. I think the problem here is that spell checker creates its own index
with the indexed tokens of a Solr field. So it does not have the original
words anymore. But if we could have an option to store the original words as
well into the spell check index, we could return them as suggestions.

Do you mind creating an Jira issue so that we don't forget about this?
