Does the babel package now work correctly with XeLaTeX?

Good Luck,

for me babel works with (transliterated) greek and german and compiling 
through XeLaTeX.
But in most cases I use direct Unicode input of foreign characters, as David 
hinted. For Hebrew Text I also use XeLaTeX with Unicode and make use of the 
bidi-package for the correct placement of commas etc. after RTL-Passages 
within my LTR-Text.
