Alternative spellings

WiktionaryZ will provide for alternative spellings (though the name for them is yet to be finalized) of Expressions. Each type of alternative spelling will be tagged with a comment explaining its nature.

This could be used to enter currently correct alternative spellings, previously correct spellings, common misspellings, spellings that vary in capitalization etc. (Cf. How to deal with conventions)

Could it be used for more? What about the Swedish verb plural forms that went out of use in the 1950's? Today all persons and numbers use the same verb form, so looking up a verb plural form it makes sense to get the currently used form - that is the form that previously were only used for singular. Is this stretching the usage of an alternative spelling too far?
