The SHY character will be presented to the hyphenator simply as a

Unfortunately, the hyphenator currently isn't as nearly as smart,
and it's a major job to push it in this direction. E.g. it means
major API changes.
Unfortunate indeed :(
BTW: I took a very quick look, and does anyone know if there is a
good reason why Hyphenation.word is a String? I mean, everything that
comes from FOText and passes through TextLM is already char. The
Hyphenation constructor takes a String parameter, so I guess
somewhere --haven't looked yet-- a String is constructed from the
portion of char that is to be hyphenated. If you then look at
HyphenationTree, it says word.toCharArray()...
