Yes, this should be done when enchant will be able to use dictionnaries 
from %datadir/myspell.

Yes, for now enchant uses myspell dictionary from %datadir/dict/ooo; 
that's why myspell dictionaries provide enchant-dictionary, but hunspell 
dictionaries don't.
We can simply replace %{_datadir}/dict/ooo by %datadir/myspell in 
enchant, but it would be probably better to patch enchant to handle both 
paths in order to ease transition.
