In LaTeX with babel option german there are several shortcuts needed for
typesetting german texts with their large amount of composita.  Some of
them are defined in Context, too, but not all (maybe I didn't find them
yet).  In typesetting german there is the need of breaking up some
ligatures, too.

Here are some examples of what I'm talking about:

composita      | line break | Babel shortcut    |  pure TeX-Code
---------------|------------|-------------------|------------------------
(Kinder-)Armut | (Kinder-)  | (Kinder"~)""Armut | (Kinder\protect10000
               | Armut      |                   | -)\allowbreak Armut
               |            |                   |
Bundestag und  | (...) und  | (...) und "~rat   | (...) und \hbox{-rat}
-rat           | -rat       |                   | [\protect1000 doesn't
               |            |                   | seem to work here]
----------------------- breaking up ligatures ---------------------------
Auffassung     | Auffassung | Auf"|fassung      | ??? (babel code:
               | (not       |                   | \textormath{\penal...@m
               | Auļ¬€assung) |                   | \discretionary{-}{}%
               |            |                   | {\kern.03em}%
               |            |                   | \allowhyphens}{}%)

Is there any context way to define these kind of shorthands?  (Babel
has the \decl...@shorthand internal command.)

TIA,
 olli
