I'm sorry, I think I wasn't clear and assumed that you follow ConTeXt
announcement. Yesterday, Hans announced a new beta where he seperated
the font and OpenType related code so that is can be used with plain.
All what I did is:
$ for i in $(grep -o -e "'.*.\.lua'" luatex-fonts.lua | sed -e "s/'//g");
do cp /opt/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/$i .; done
and tar bzipped the files, with minor modification to the test file,
nothing to be credited for.

I don't know much about cid files, but I think it is important for east
asian fonts, even if it isn't part of TeXLive, users are no more bound
to special TeX fonts.
