Well, not so recent (June 1st or so), but anyway...

Wrong. There is such a mechanism. \bbl at patterns has been patched to use it.
Apparently polyglossia is not using this macro to load patterns (which would
make sense, since the pattern pre-loading system is from babel).

Well, a new solution is provided, but we forgot to check if it would work ootb
with polyglossia. OTOH, polyglossia is not officially supporting LuaTeX...

The configuration is already entirely different for context, luatex and
lualatex, fwiw.

Would it be okay for you to use a modified language switching macro with
polyglossia? If so, I can provide you with such a macro (just give me a test
file, so that I can test it).
