It should be rare on the same node of the DOM tree, since a new span will create a new node. So as long as spans (and other tags) use the proper lang attributes it should really not happen. Without the proper lang attributes added, Sigil will NOT be guessing language. That is a kettle of fish that Sigil will not be opening.

Not so bad if the markuperer italicises the foreign phrases, at least then you can search and eyeball - provided they do it consistently, which of course they often don't.

Absolutely agree. The expectation will be that the proper language attributes have already been correctly added. If this is not the case, users will need to add/correct them themselves (or take it up with an ebook's creator) if they want multi-language spellcheck to be the most useful in Sigil. GIGO still very much applies.
