  Yes, of course, that makes a lot of sense.  (Although I have to say I
was really disappointed when I saw that that primitive had been named
\hyphenationmin instead of something more consistent like
\totalhyphenmin ...).

  But the point really is to put the value in hyphenation files so it’s
available for others to use; is there any language you’d like to add
that to?
