I think there are people who do. You can use underline for syntax
highlighting. Then undercurl is still available for badly spelled
words on top of that. If you don't want to use undercurl, then perhaps
overwriting the underline in a different color would be OK.
If we would use guisp for underline then there would at least be the
fallback that when it's not set guifg must be used, otherwise it's not
backward compatible. And then when there is a spell error an existing
underline would suddenly change color when the undercurl appears.

I was thinking of another name for "underline" that does use the guisp
color. I don't really want to add more color arguments, it's a bit
bulky in the code.
The startling truth finally became apparent, and it was this: Numbers
written on restaurant checks within the confines of restaurants do not follow
the same mathematical laws as numbers written on any other pieces of paper in
any other parts of the Universe. This single statement took the scientific
world by storm. So many mathematical conferences got held in such good
restaurants that many of the finest minds of a generation died of obesity and
heart failure, and the science of mathematics was put back by years.
