Brilliant - I had been through this realization process myself a couple weeks ago, whilst dictating some Omnifocus-related notes to self, and Siri's pronunciation was cracking me up. It sounded like a mystery british adjective: "Quite omNIFicus of you, old chap."

Oddly, now, as I verify the Siri behavior before I post by saying "OMniFOcus" into the iPhone "Notes" app, it's spelling "Omnifocus" properly, & interpreting my "OmNIFicus" less accurately.
