[lltx] Can luatex auto-run mkluatexfontdb ?

I'm thinking about the workflow that users will need to follow when installing new system fonts for LuaLaTeX. In XeTeX, if a font is not found then the font cache is refreshed to see if there have been new fonts installed. This is far friendly than having to run mkluatexfontdb, even if it has a button in tlmgr. But am I right in thinking that this won't be possible for security reasons? (A la shell escape.)
