Ricardo was surely talking about the Spanish dictionaries. You can get
an idea about what was distributed with the langpacks by browsing
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/ooo/trunk/main/dictionaries/
If you look at
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/ooo/trunk/main/dictionaries/es_ES/
only the spelling dict. was distributed (no hyph. nor thes.).

A rough analysis http://people.apache.org/~arielch/dictionaries.ods
shows that more than half language packs didn't distribute the three DICT, 
HYPHEN and THES dics.
