  No.  Why would they be restricted to a single document?

  Well, my contribution was sent five months ago, you didn’t reply to it
until now, and since you talk about hyphenation exceptions above I
suspect you haven’t really understood it.  It doesn’t use exceptions at
all, and takes instead advantage of LuaTeX’s ability to manipulate the
pattern set on the fly.  As such, it can actually be a step towards an
entirely new pattern set, but it is of course not complete.  I am
however not prepared to put even more effort into this unless you
contribute something too yourself.

  This paragraph is either nonsensical or counterfactual.  I don’t
understand what you’re trying to say.
