Thanks for your help, Ulrike.

Ulrike, I wonder whether your method could be reported in the TeXLive 
mailing list as an improvement or a bugfix to be implemented.

Do you think that this would be useful to the general public?

I guess so, because other not only Greek, but Russian and Bulgarian 
(among other ones) will be hyphenated using LuaLaTeX.

But I don't know whether your approach may have collateral damages 
(sorry, I'm simply ignorant).

In case it is be useful, I will report this in the TeXLive mailing list.

Many thanks for your help,
