If it is a question of dropping the "name" la-x-classic I have nothing 
against; if it is a question of dropping a different hyphenation scheme 
from modern and medieval Latin, I don't agree at all.

Besides the fact that it took me a whole month work to examine all 
possible prefixes and declination/conjugation endings in order to assure 
proper etymological hyphenation for classic Latin, the two schemes are 
so different that it is impossible to merge them in just one pattern file.

May be "lac_LA" would match the general scheme in a better way?
All the best
