It is on purpose. Since the package is for a dictionary ;-)
It should be easy to add a -hyphenation püackage though but there are hughe 
chances it will be rejected. See 
http://lists.debian.org/debian-openoffice/2003/10/msg00388.html. The solution 
here is to include all hyph stuff into one package. But see below...

It isn't possible. The hyphenation stuff has a completely another format like 
the spellcheck stuff. They are based on the TeX hyphenation patterns
(and many on ftp.stardiv.de simply violate copyrights/copyright law...)
