I disagree.  A hyphen is a hyphen is a hyphen, so to say.  It must has
the font's default hyphen length and must not be shortened, otherwise
a reader gets distracted IMHO since it looks unusual.

on facts.  Maybe someone has some time to investigate that by checking
various vocal scores of various publishers.
