Thanks.  No, this is not possible, AFAIK.  Honestly, I don't a
practical use for that.

Instead, I would rather prefer to have a means to make \hyphenation
work regardless of LHM and RHM settings, e.g.

\documentclass[DIV=8, paper=A8]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{ngerman}

\lefthyphenmin 3
\righthyphenmin 3

\hyphenation{xx-yy}

\begin{document}
xxyy xxyy xxyy xxyy
xxyy xxyy xxyy xxyy
\end{document}

Then I could add a list of short German words where 2-2 hyphenation
looks OK.
