I'm obviously not able to follow. Of which letters are you speaking?
My version of luatex-unicode-letters.tex doesn't contain a \catcode
setting in line 18 (there is the \begingroup-command).

Also why it is necessary to change the formats? Why can't the
problematic catcodes be changed in the document?
