My view is that the "poor program" shouldn't have to do the
reconstitution: it's my job as an encoder to do it -- either I will
leave the hyphen in, or I'll suppress it: then I'll record what I did in
the <hyphenation/> element..

See above. If I want the hyphen suppressed, I'll suppress it in my
encoding. so I will write
either "evil-<lb break="yes"/>doers" or evil<lb break="yes"/>doers
When we discussed the @break attribute some time back, I vaguely
remember people mentioning the existence of a special Unicode character
which stood for "supressable hyphen", so maybe that could be used here.
Unless I dreamed it.
I suppose I could even do evil<del resp="#LB">-</del><lb break="yes"/>doers
