I realize one has to do both. My concern is that too many submitters seem to spell check so little.

I think one has to do both. I read the books I validated and then when I'm finished with the validation I do a spell check, equivalent, in that it catches misspelled words, to K's rank spelling. But if one just uses the ranks spelling, words that are spelled correctly but are not correct in the context will be missed, e.g., die for the, the numeral one for capital I, en for end, an for and, and so on.
