It is... and only for a set of them.

Microtype is working for LuaTeX the same way it does with pdfTeX (a bit
worse actually...), so all that happens in luaotfload is totally new and
never worked before in microtype. As it's quite independant, I thought
it would be good to separate it a bit from microtype...
But anyway, one of the goals of microtype is to store values of
protrusion and expansion for different fonts, meaning that they are
really fine tuned for these fonts, and I'm not sure this kind of things
would belong to luaotfload or fontspec... I think luaotfload should
provide an interface to pass these values to the algorithm, and that
another package should provide them; but it could provide default values
that could be activated automatically. Wdyt?
