Exactly. Said otherwise, the 'loader' attribute in language.dat.lua is not used
at all. (The documentation of the tex & lua part of the system,
luatex-hyphen.pdf, says it explicitly.)

I'm afraid there isn't much more documentation. The man page of tlmgr has some
information in the "generate" section too. But basically, attributes are just
renamed as follows, in the conversion tlpsrc -> language.dat.lua

- file -> loader
- file_patterns -> patterns
- file_exceptions -> hyphenation
- luaspecial -> special
- remaining fields unchanged

Feel free to ask for more details if needed.
