The number of changes is very small (far far fewer than the changes between texlive 2015 and 2016) so the 1.0.0 release is more of a symbolic (but important) statement of stability rather than anything that affects many users. So I'd agree with Karl that the normal policy of updating binaries only at a new texlive release should be fine here.

Not sure which support files you mean but I think you can be assured
that any files, either from the luatex team or elsewhere such as the
luaotfload files or the luatex support for latex will either work for
a range of luatex releases
(the usual case) or be held in the same branch as luatex 1.0 and hit
texlive and miktex only when the binaries update.
