Since the hyphenation patterns of the xetex-greek
package are incompatible with the greek option of the
babel package (their encodings are simply
incompatible), it
makes no sense to typeset using babel and xetex-greek.
I am working on a Unicode version of greek option
will solve this problem. In the mean time, you can
a file named hyphen.cfg having the following as its
\message{Hyphenation patterns for American-English}
\input ushyphmax.tex
\input xgrmhyph.tex %or/and \input xgrahyph.tex
Then from your source file you will be able to
enable the Greek hyphenation by issuing a \moderngreek
or \ancientgreek command. Notice that initially I
tried to use the language.dat mechanism, but it did
not give 
the expected results, but I haven't figured out why.
