Perfect! This command absolutely skipped from attention, since my
current project is done with polyglossia. Fortunately, polyglossia
includes a copy of relevant babel code.

There is yet another brutal luatex soluton that just crossed my mind:
in a pre_linebreak_filter, we parse all glyphs nodes, and if it's "-"
and followed by a node.id("dics"), we simple remove that next node. It

Just out of curiosity, can you think of any disadvantage of this luatex method?

Thanks a lot,
