BetterRed's preference would be that applications incorporate as many keyboard shortcuts as possible. But, apart from the standard sequences such as Ctrl+A/Z/X/C/V which would be non-customisable, they should not ship any default keyboard shortcuts, other than via an optional plugin which would set them to the 'developers default set'

You do know you can enable spellcheck when typing in CodeView instead of spellchecking the entire document.

Yes, but many times it's easier to spellcheck in the purely text/visual level, minus all the code cruft.

Especially when you're working with things like:
  • tables
  • millions of <span>s (think InDesign code)
  • ugly code (think <span style="font-weight:bold;font-style:italic;color:red;">word</span>)
  • [...]

And context matters. Misspelt words are often acceptable in dialogue, but not in narrative. In a biography one would normally avoid contractions, except in quotes, whereas they may be acceptable in a novel's narrative.

Whilst you can see the text in codeview, you can't read the text in codeview.

Aside: yesterday, I picked up an error in an article destined for a prestigious literary journal that I'd been asked to proofread. The article had a legal thread running though it. In one place the word 'feat' was used, but it hardly made sense; what special thing did someone do - nothing by no-one as far as I could see. Initially my mind went to 'feet', as in a matter being on-foot (in progress), but that made no sense either. Then the penny dropped, it was a mistyped 'fear', and that made a lot of sense.

My point being, I probably wouldn't have seen the error if I was looking at the text embedded in code, I would have been distracted by an ugly <span blah-de-blah> or some such. Psst - I was reading ink on paper armed with a purple Sharpie.
