This kind of problem already exists for anyone who exchanges documents
between North America and the rest of the world, because of default A4
versus letter paper sizes.  That's bad enough.  You're right that adding
hyphenation patterns as yet another thing we have to negotiate and
carefully override on every document, wouldn't be a good idea.
