  One thing I could imagine is splitting collection-langother into
exactly two collections, one for the languages for which there is
support from Babel, and one for the other ones for which there's no
support, only the hyphenation patterns (something like
langhyphenandbabel and langhyphenonly, with better names, possibly).

  I'm willing to create and maintain the list, obviously.

  It may make sense to regroup families of lesser-spoken languages, but
the only one I can think of is merging Lithuanian and Latvian into a
langbaltic collection (but even then, why not also Finnish and Hungarian
into languralic?  Danish, Norwegian(s) and Swedish into
langscandinavian?  It seems too touchy).
