itlc *.lua
font-dum.lua:local function itlc(tfmdata,value)
font-dum.lua:fonts.initializers.base.otf.itlc = itlc
font-dum.lua:fonts.initializers.node.otf.itlc = itlc
font-ext.lua:function initializers.common.itlc(tfmdata,value)
font-ext.lua:initializers.base.otf.itlc = initializers.common.itlc
font-ext.lua:initializers.node.otf.itlc = initializers.common.itlc
font-ext.lua:initializers.base.afm.itlc = initializers.common.itlc
font-ext.lua:initializers.node.afm.itlc = initializers.common.itlc

But then it would be probably difficult to disable it again. Also
can luaotfload differ between italic and non-italic fonts? I have no
idea what the tag does when used with arbitrary fonts.
