I totally agree with you that there should be a way to load xunicode 
with LuaTeX, but, sadly, there is nothing I can do about it... The only 
thing we could do is to create a euxunicode package that loads it, so 
that it would be common to XeTeX and LuaTeX. Do you (all) think it would 
be a good idea to separate euxunicode from euenc? I can't remember the 
reasons why we melt it together at the first place...

Thank you,
