I've checked the current state on TL (antomega has not been yet touched 
since TL2004), and I found that when building lambda and lamed formats, 
both read:
texmf-dist/tex/lambda/antomega/hyphen.cfg and than antomega.cfg
and uni*.def files, but, unfortunately, we don't have 
/texmf-dist/tex/lambda/config/language.dat in TL, so they read 
(Thomas can we borrow that from teTeX? btw what's the source
of that file?)

So both formats are somehow broken in the sense already described by 
Thomas (lambda stays untouched), but not so broken in the sense proposed 
by Alexej (lambda is well prepared for reading 16-bit hyphenation 

To conclude, the best way is to make separate antomega format, I think.

Ps. Alexej, would you please sending me any example for antomega?
