If you mean glyph reordering in Indic scripts, it should happen later
than hyphenation; it’s no different than ligatures in Latin in that
respect. But I don’t know how it is implemented in ConTeXt ...
The existing patterns don’t hyphenate any reordering sign (or indeed any
dependent vowel sign). If they do, it’s a bug and we need to fix it :-)
Note that Jürgen mentioned Latin transliteration where glyph
reordering is not an issue (but ligatures of course are).
