[XeTeX] (Xe)LaTeX output in a non-(Xe)LaTeX scholarly community

Is there some mistake?  The Oxford Guide to Style does have pretty extensive 
coverage of word division in each of its language sections (which are 
numerous):  Greek word division is section 11.25.4 on page 299, for example. 
(Some fairly awful typos throughout that work, including a couple on that 
page, for reasons that I know a bit about but needn't go into here.  But 
it's always at my elbow while I'm working.)
