Somewhat cleaner is to do it this way:

  %%%%%%%
  \definebreakpoints[czcompound]   
  \definebreakpoint[czcompound][-][nleft=3,nright=3,type=4] 

  \appendtoks
   \ifx\mylanguage\currentlanguage 
      \setbreakpoints[czcompound] 
   \else 
      \resetbreakpoints
   \fi
  \to\everylanguage


It would be nice if that language= key would work, though (it is ignored, it seems)
