I think it would be very useful for authors to be able to include their own supplemental hyphenation dictionaries, containing words they use in their industry, brand names, product names, jargon, etc. that wouldn't be in any built-in resource or algorithm. Is that what we are talking about here? It would not have to be hand-coded every time; an authoring tool could provide a way to add words to the resource, or a tool could provide a way to convert and include the user dictionaries already used in the author's word processing or design/publishing software.
