This is not easy to answer. Right now, it is clearly a side-effect.

If we decide to keep the binary modules support (which is experimental
right now) then in the future, it would be nice to build our 'own' lua
dll. But that will require quite some changes to the build scripts
as well as a conceptual change to the distribution process. Not easy
to integrate that back into texlive.

Best wishes,
