The word 're-create' is in common use but almost always (I would say) misspelt as 'recreate', which to me is the obscure verb of harmless enjoyment, pronounced rek-.

Hyphenation is not a problem, over-hyphenation is. (That wasn't an intentional example, but one word 'over-hyphenation' is quite as clear as 'too much hyphenation' and much clearer than fused 'overhyphenation'.)

Rewriting for clarity is good; rewriting to conform to imposed rules is like writing sonnets: fine if you want to but not compulsory.
