Updates are coordinated with TeX Live team (and W32TeX follows TeX
Live), but they aren't coordinated with Christian Schenk (which I
believe they should). Particularly for the latest luatex & babel
updates (as well as hyph-utf8).

After LuaTeX update in TeX Live, many scripts and packages had to be
adapted to get compliant with lua 5.2. TeX Live is frozen, but without
close coordination the author of MikTeX probably doesn't know what
exactly is going on has to fight with all the problems on his own
which is suboptimal.
