And as tex files, they need to be put somewhere into texmf/tex. If the
hyphenation files work more or less independed of the format, these files
deserve a place in texmf/tex/generic.

I don't think that texmf/tex/generic/omegahyphen (or omhyphen) is such
a bad place...

There is nothing like a main omega path. Hyphenation pattern files
are read along the TEXINPUTS path by omega and we want to texmf/tex//
as the only place for those files.
