Dictionary deltas

Currently each project can use a default dictionary, or replace the default dictionary with their own sets of dictionaries.

At least one project has identified words that they'd like to remove from the dictionary.

As the initial implementation includes a whitelist of acceptable words, it seems reasonable to handle rejecting words by adding a blacklist which would remove words from the dictionary (instead of removing them from the corpus).

⚠️ See caveat about Avoid using colors in names.

As this feature hasn't shipped, and as there's a desire/need for both additions and removals, I think I'm going to go with:

The order of operations will be:

This means that if a word is in both allow and reject, it will end up not being in the dictionary.
