The British hyphenation patterns are loaded in the XeLaTeX format so
that you can just switch them using Polyglossia. They are also loaded
in plain XeTeX (unless it was deselected at TL install time). You have
to look into xetex.log, find the corresponding number and then assign
it to \language, it is not necessary to build a format.
