These are the parts related to controlling hyphenation characteristics
for internationalization as with other things in the LANGUAGE.xml So
adding these is fine

Your other alternative could be without touching the de.xml to add the
following to your custimization file

<xsl:param name="local.l10n.xml" select="document('')"/>
<l:i18n xmlns:l="http://docbook.sourceforge.net/xmlns/l10n/1.0">
  <l:l10n xmlns:l="http://docbook.sourceforge.net/xmlns/l10n/1.0"
    <l:gentext key="hyphenation-character" text="&#x002D;"/>
    <l:gentext key="hyphenation-push-character-count" text="2"/>
    <l:gentext key="hyphenation-remain-character-count" text="2"/>

As you can see I changed the hyphenation-character sice I am always
getting "#" instead of a "-"

>>Hehe Turkish is full support :-)

Indeed I am ( Ok I maintain the Turkish part so I was following the
changes on the CVS and submitted them to Norm before the release date
hence they were included)

It depends on the maintainer maybe the maintainer has not updated the
changes yet. Given the fact that Turkish is one of the languages where
support is very minimum and on the other German is receiving lots of
support I would assume very soon the "de.xml"  will be uptodate as well
