I think you ought to think about this a bit longer.  Anybody who is
that confused about what's a command and what's output shouldn't be
driving a shell without supervision.

Have you tried "setopt correctall"?

I do think correctall would be more usable if you could actually enter
the corrected spelling at the SPROMT, rather than merely accepting or
rejecting the guess and then having to go back to zle to edit the line.

It might be useful to have the word or character position of the last
failed correction available to compctl, and to have a history reference
for the last unknown command or syntax error.
