Well... LuaTeX is still **officially** a beta and will be until it hits 1.0
at the end of 2012 conference if development follows the current roadmap.
Also, I bet pdfTeX will still retain a critical mass of users for many more

I vote for adding LuaTeX to the built-in list of engines because it is quite
stable, has powered ConTeXt MK IV for years, and is starting to catch on.
But, I think it will be a few years before we could consider changing the
default away from pdfTeX.
