is there a standard way to detect the hyphen position?

I don't think so.  Contrary to the x-height of glyphs there is no
necessity normally to get this value.

Or should we shove "-" down pango, and take the BBox of that?

This sounds like an excellent idea, since we not only get the right
position but the correct thickness too.

BTW, is it possible to use the font's dash glyph itself?  In some

I guess it is, but will require slight rehacking.

The behavior described by Werner has a much greater effect if the lyrics
are scaled as in the example below.

I fixed this in CVS. Note that you should use

 \set  fontSize = #5

if you want to scale everything, not just the lyrics themselves.
