I'm with you 100% on this Nathan. I think protecting the brand is great but altering content without permission is creepy and compare it to if Microsoft started altering words in a users Word doc without permission. 

Perhaps a better solution would be to add a spell check rule to the TinyMCE which annoys people into fixing it, rather than doing it behind their backs.
