xetlatex.ini can't do it: latex.ltx changes lccode/uccode directly
before reading hyphen.cfg:

\lccode`\^^[=`\^^[   % oe in OT1
\lccode`\- =`\-   % default hyphen char
\lccode 127=127   % alternate hyphen char
\lccode 23 =23    % textcompwordmark in T1

There is no sensible hook for xelatex.ini.

The codes must be changed again either at the begin of hyphen.cfg or
at the begin of every pattern affected by the problem.
