I have some potentially good news.

You can try to fetch the latest LuaTeX from
which Norbert helped me set up.

You need to ask others how exactly this works. I did something like:

tlmgr repository add http://texlive.contextgarden.net/2016-context tlcontext
tlmgr repository list
tlmgr pinning add tlcontext luatex
tlmgr --force remove luatex
tlmgr install luatex

but I'm sure there's a better way, I just didn't figure it out yet.

If you install ConTeXt from there, you'll all get a huge pile of
additional documentation.

I added x86_64-linux and x86_64-darwin to start with (just to test
whether it works at all), but I can easily add other architectures.
(Windows hasn't been tested at all.)

Please note that this is highly experimental / there is no promise of
stability yet.

If things fail, you can always revert back to the official binary with
tlmgr and without messing around with the TL tree manually
