The reason this currently isn't done is that I considered it rather
unlikely for `cmap` to be used there. Most LuaLaTeX documents
don't use fonts with traditional TeX encodings, so `cmap` would be
useless. The exceptions are mostly documents which need some degree of
pdfTeX compatibility and math fonts. Documents which use legacy TeX text
font probably use luatex85 anyway and if it's only used for mathfonts
then mmap is probably preferred anyway.
