So perhaps luaotfload.sty does more tricks than simply loading otf
fonts... I'll skim through those packages some time later. Thanks.

This seems to be ConTeXt's way to handle it (\start&\stop<language>),
afaict. Defining \texperanto and \endtexperanto would do the trick for
LaTeX, if I want to use an environment.

I still have to figure out how to tie this to polyglossia, to get the
right hyphenation and captions; but that's another matter.
