I'm not really closely following the current restructuring efforts, but
could you please point out what makes first-class support for patterns
from dehyph-exptl (german-x et al.) desirable? How do the timestamped
patterns break your scheme for all the other languages?
Note, those experimental pattern sets are relatively large. To me, it
doesn't seem right to load them into the format.
