Except if there is any feature you want to use that doesn’t work under
LuaTeX.

pdfpages for example says that it only supports pdflatex and vtex.

Is there a way to replicate the functionality with LuaTeX? Possibly, but
you have to find out how, and it’s not the first hit on stackoverflow.

Currently LaTeX hasn’t converged on one implementation (which would imply
that all features exist in the implementation it converged on and all
packages were ported or have obvious replacements), so I don’t see a
clearcut decision.

Best wishes,
Arne
