Right. The primary development for the LuaLaTeX part of fontspec has 
been by Khaled Hosny and Elie Roux.

The primary goals for v2 is LuaTeX support; I hope to overhaul the 
interface/feature set after my thesis is finished later this year. 
Having said that, feel free to offer feature requests on the Issues 
page on GitHub linked above.

Yes, but it will require, perhaps, a little more configuration than 
fontspec on XeTeX currently does.

Hope so :)
If the bugs get ironed out this/next week then I hope to make a "beta 
version" announcement here and on the LuaTeX list for wider testing.
