sure, but hardcoding a multiple handler in the luatex kernel does not 
solve that problem since one still needs to agree on the order and 
priorities then; therefore a solution in lua code (in the macro package) 
can provide a similar solution; for context we have such a wrapper 
(prioritizer) already [currently rather interwoven] and i suppose that 
one can write for latex etc; but the most important aspect is that for a 
specific macro package the style writers agree on some order (luatex 
cannot solve that for you)
