That wouldn't be a problem for me, but in my tests, lualatex's hyphenation is significantly worse than what I'm normally used to with latex. The problem I'm seeing is that long words are not hyphenated at all and stick out at the end of the line. With pdflatex this only happens rarely, with lualatex I see it at least a dozen times in a ca. 150 pages document.
