#15889 needinfo enhancement

'spelled like' operator

It would be useful to be able to write validation rules that checked for misspellings of a given word. spelledLike("Street") could match strings like "Steet" or "Sreet".

It's currently possible to do this just by creating all the possibilities, which is pretty tedious.

We already have a validator spell checker function. Why do you need additional spell checker?

I'd like to be able to use mapcss to specify words to check in arbitrary tag values (like names). Quite a few people make minor typos. A full dictionary doesn't make any sense but checking for values that are similar to frequently used words (like Street, Avenue, School, etc) would be useful.
