  I didn't have time to participate in a discussion one month ago, but
expected that you would at least let us know when the code was ready so
that we would have a chance to comment, and amend the packages that
depended on hyphen.cfg.  Uploading to CTAN directly, from where it was
propagated to distributions, created serious problems for Polyglossia
(and, I suspect, other packages) -- it made it essentially unusable with

  I understand Babel has since then been downgraded, at least in TeX
Live, so it's not an urgent problem any more, but it would have been
good practice to invite people to test before deploying the code to
production environments, particularly since you initiated the discussion
yourself on this list (You may have made announcements elsewhere, but I
haven't seen any, and I read many mailing lists).
