I happily leave the pattern naming decision to Arthur.

Stephan: what are your plans about babel/polyglossia? Do Swiss German
patterns need their own entry in TeX Live/MikTeX configuration as
well? If the answer is yes: should one wait for Babel/Polyglossia
support first before adding a new entry?

Adding the patterns to hyph-utf8 is not too strictly related to adding
an entry to TL. We can add the patterns in any case, it's just the
question of ease of use.
