There is a specification on this feature:


(not sure, how far the current state is from its completeness).

It's just a guess, but I think it will work on self-learning anyhow but  
can be usable out-of-box for the languages with spellchecking dictionaries  
(hunspell or some other modern dictionary) only. The Asian languages will  
benefit from Input methods suggestions even without this AT-SPI feature.

Just my 2 cents.
