You are not using babel if you load it with the base option. Only a
a very small part. If you don't want this: Study the code in
luababel.def and replicate it. (Or study the code in polyglossia or
luatex-hyphen). But why reinventing the wheel? Also as your users
will probably use either polyglossia or babel your code should be
compatible with both, so doing something special is perhaps not the
best strategy.
