This is not a result of blind trial and error, I found it by reading and
examining the code before I tried it.

But -I omega does exactly that. Omega works in Unicode so that the files
contain plain UTF8 without LICR. XeTeX does the same, the files are
identical although the engine is different, encTeX without inputenc does
exactly the same. I have not examined LuaTeX but most probably it is the
same case.
