The code didn't work with the context in miktex and a context from a
minimals about 3 month old (I got no errors but no reencoding
either). It worked fine with a current context. 

In latex/luaotfload I got at first an error ("enc" is nil). After I
added "if not fonts.enc then fonts.enc = { } end" it compiled but
didn't reencode. So I guess I will have to wait until luaotfload
gets updated before I can use this solution (which looks fine). 

But I wished they were some documentation about the general
structure of the font loading and processing and all this fields
(fonts.manipulators, fonts.triggers, tfmdata.postprocessors, ...).
Is there someone (beside yourself) who still understand the overall
