Currently the (soon-to-be-released) version 1.2 of polyglossia offers support for 67 
different languages. Armenian is not among them yet, but I'd be happy to create a module 
to support it. Ideally this can only be achieved with the help of someone competent in 
that language, but at least the attached file should provide initial basic support. If 
someone is able to translate the caption strings, that would be nice! The code for 
formatting the date and the month names derives from the data for Armenian in the "Common 
Locale Data Repository":
Please inform me if I made a mistake!

@Arthur: is "hyphenmins={2,2}" (for left and right, resp.) okay for Armenian?

PS: the attached file cannot be used with polyglossia v1.1.1. You need to get v1.2 from 
but the easiest is to wait for its appearance on CTAN (probably) tomorrow :)
