I seem to remember some change to babel was needed for the LaTeX part. So, this 
part should be discussed with the LaTeX team once it's ready (I mean, something 
working, reasonably tested by us, and well documented). Only them can update 
babel (which may still take some time since, though babel itself is now in the 
LaTeX SVN repo, babel's test suite currently exists only on Johannes' machine, 
if I understand correctly). We'll update babel in TL only from the CTAN (just as 
any other package, for that matter).

Changes to etex.src may be easier to get in, but nevertheless should be agreed 
by etex's authors (not sure about the legal requirement, but anyway it looks 
like the correct thing to do) and go through CTAN.

I believe that people wanting to test LuaTeX will be ready to update regularly 
via tlmgr, so it is probably no big deal if we can't get it ready and included 
for the DVD. Though I admit the DVD makes a great deadline for motivating 
ourselves :-) Anyway, we shouldn't hurry too much, it's more important IMO to 
get it right than to get it out early, since we're touching at the format, which 
makes it complicated to fix by users should a problem arise.

I'll let Karl answer on this one.
