It works, of course.

Well, obviously because polyglossia doesn't take 'serbianc' into
account. Should it?

As I have already said, I have a solution that I've been using for many
years: putting "serbian loadhyph-sr-latn.tex loadhyph-sr-cyrl.tex" in
language.dat and rebuilding xelatex format. All you have to do (if you
want to make life of Serbian users easier) is to achieve it in some more
acceptable way.

As for LuaLaTeX, I'm not competent to say anything about it, but since
it's Unicode-aware and since Cyrillic and Latin patterns are disjunct
for it as they are for XeLaTeX, they should probably be loaded together.
