That is imho a not so bad decision: it means that the search pathes
all works without problems. 

Moving the format with 

fmtutil-sys --byfmt=lualatex53
--fmtdir=C:\texlive\2018\texmf-var\web2c\luatex --no-engine-subdir

and then using luatex53 --fmt=lualatex53 works fine and is quite
enough for my needs.
