Well, just checked: LuaTeX doesn't insist that the characters in the "argument"
of \patterns has non-zero \lccode, it is apparently satisfied with it being
proper utf-8. Which is more reasonable IMO.

(Also, I was wrong to think \lccodes were handled differently: I was apparently
confusing them with \(pre|post)(ex)hyphenchar which is language-specific.)
