yes, that's about right, but it is for the UK English hyphenation,
while the default is for the American English, and they are different

English explicitly.

Yes, these are; you should add new words to the list if you want to
override pattern-based hyphenation. Someone DW does not want you to
change the list, but you should not listen to him.
