It is not problem how often language.dat changes but 
that if it was changed once then users will be prompted
everytime at upgrading.

And I suspect that for users in europe it is not rare to
add extra hyphenation pattern, at least.

Okay, if you can provide us the way to handle texmf.cnf
(central configuration file for all TeX related packages)
which can work well with jadetex, xmltex, ptex, jtex,
dvipsk-ja etc. please let me know.

Note users can add local modification freely with the
current method, please read README.Debian.
