I will add this idea to the wiki too.

This is the good idea! I've looked into some other distros, Fedora 
despite absent MySpell still uses the old location for dictionaries. 
Distros like Arch, Debian, Ubuntu keep files in %{_datadir}/hunspell/* 
and use symlinks in %{_datadir}/myspell/*. Gentoo uses common packages 
for both spell-checkers.

I favour installing files into %{_datadir}/hunspell/* and to keep 
symlinks in %{_datadir}/myspell/* as the backward compatibility.
