Which is a strange thing, as I thought it would be limited to the
behavior of hboxes and footnotes only – I have seen redefinitions of
catcode in the style file, but they are enclosed inside a group. But
I must admit that I am not an expert in analyzing style files...

Looks fine here. However, considering the amount of text, this will
be a quite tedious process and a possible source of errors. It would
be great to find a more handsome approach.

I have a lot of German text as well, so I depend on the multilingual
faculties of polyglossia. And in my example, I just wanted to show
that this interaction is not limited to the way ArabXeTeX handles the
vocals. The third h is written in plain utf without any accent,
however, you get a sukkun above it.
