Follow-up Comment #9, bug #53413 (project groff):

If the user asks to hyphenate after the first letter, groff should indeed
refuse in case current language's hyphenation parameters don't allow it.

Right now, these parameters are hardcoded using `.hy', this is, they are part
of groff's language setup files.  My suggestion is to make groff look into the
meta information of the pattern themselves while they are loaded to set those
parameters.  The `.hy' command could then become a user-only request
restricted by the meta information – for example, setting hy=48 would have
no effect because the patterns don't allow it.
