I've opened bug #57556 with this suggestion.

I take it you're referring here to the tmac/{cs|de|fr|ja|sv|zh}.tmac files?

$ shopt -s extglob
$ grep '\. *hy' tmac/@(cs|de|fr|ja|sv|zh).tmac
tmac/cs.tmac:.hy 1
tmac/de.tmac:.hy 1
tmac/fr.tmac:.hy 4
tmac/sv.tmac:.hy 32

Curiously, there is no such setup file for English, even though the groff
default (.hy 1) is invalid for the English hyphenation patterns.  Until a fix
for bug 57556 offers a more robust solution to this, perhaps there should be a
tmac/en.tmac that is called by default in English environments?
