Amber doesn't really use hybridizations for much of anything, and the force
fields ignore them completely. The only place they are used (that I know
of) is in the "relax selection" option of xleap, which can do an initial
optimization without knowing the force field. Adding a new type of
hybridization there would be a programming task.
