You certainly mean 12, not 11? May I suggest the following formulation?

\begingroup \catcode`{1 \catcode`}2
\directlua{tex.enableprimitives('', tex.extraprimitives('etex', 'pdftex'))}

And I think it is just enough and we should add no more to the files (except if
babel changes to allow just-on-time loading of the patterns, which would allow
to skip loading them in the format).

I think it belongs to the macro packages: for now, your luatextra package, and
hopefully some day the LaTeX3 core.

I also think it belongs to the macro packages: latest version of ifluatex.sty
does it. And every Plain or LaTeX packages which does anything related to LuaTeX
should load it anyway.
