In my opinion only, I think this is too short for a "programming" 
macro. Say I want to print "lua" in my document in some typeface, then 
\lua would be a natural macro to use. Instead, it's taken up by this 
primitive that few *document* authors will ever want to know about.

"\luadirect" seems like a fine choice to me.
