The license states:

redistribute modifications in patch form is granted.  Permission

Is that acceptable?

I'll do if the license is acceptable.

If the same package really works in mozilla, perhaps people who don't use OO
will want to install it. Is it really correct to merge OO-only files
(hyphenation) with not-OO-only stuff (the dictionary)?

However, if it is required, the package should be merged with
openoffice.org-hyphenation-ru, currently maintained by Debian OpenOffice
Team <debian-openoffice@lists.debian.org> - that is, by you :).
