[lltx] location of font cache /fontspec and microtype

1. The script mkluatexfontdb claims:

"The output database file is named otfl-fonts.lua. By default it is
in $TEXMFVAR/luatex/generic/luaotfload/names"

Well in my case is not there but in the same root where the script
resides in tex/luatex/luaotfload/names. 

Is this simply a documentation error or is there something wrong
with my setup? (lualatex finds map files in my TEXMFVAR =
!!$USERPROFILE/Lokale Einstellungen/Anwendungsdaten/MiKTeX/2.7
without problems).

2. Somewhere else someone asked about lualatex + microtype. After
some tests I found the following solution:



\setmainfont[Microtype,Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Libertine O}

%or without \newfontfeature
% Libertine O}


Is \newfontfeature the right command to add such new features? And
if yes what would be good names for the microtype features?
