Hmm, two points about "invoke the command again and so forth."

1. I believe google's spellcheck takes the context of the word into 
account when deciding what the correct word is.  So popping up a list 
only for particular words is probably not the greatest idea.

2. As soon as a command is run on one of the tab stop misspelled words, 
all the other snippet tab stops are lost.
