Beware, you're mixing different levels here. ConTeXt, like LaTeX, is a 
format (a set of macros); LuaTeX is an engine (a program). One can very 
well use the LaTeX format with the LuaTeX engine. So development in 
LuaTeX benefits the entire TeX community, no matter whether you use 
plain TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, or whatever else.
