This prevented me from getting rid of the package. I tried compiling a typical document of mine without using luainputenc, and it works fine so I guess it’s time for me to stop using luainputenc.

luainputenc is useful for some tricky documents that are hard to
convert from pdftex to luatex but it disables almost all the Unicode
support in luatex (making it emulate the 8-bit pdftex), so it is
certainly not a good idea to routinely include it.
