Doesn't hurt but is not really necessary..
The Provides: is there to being able to suggest / recommend the right
dictionaries / haphenations. --l10n-sv therefore only suggests -dv and
there is no need for this provide.
You would need it if there was an old package in Debian or somewhere
and you have that rename/merge, you would need that
Replaces:/Cconflicts:/Provides: magic. But that is not the case here.

But I would hold off to package -hyphenation-* (and therefore add the
Provides: of it) as long as we haven't thought out an solution
how we are going to handle that stuff yet. We are going to discuss it
with James, but I think he has other things to do right now so it will
take some days...

... which was written so to make it working with mozilla, too. This is
just one way. I tested the symlink method (which I prefer since that
makes installing the dicts easier with dh_install)..
Another point is that all people know the names and installing - _may_
confuse users...

There may be a possibility of mozilla not supporting sv-* (note the
-). It works for almost all the dicts which came around me, though..
