Does it make sense to anybody else that Luas file IO should
be centalized around the io library()?

The exceptions are:

lua side - loadfile() and dofile().
Should these be file:load() and file:do() or io.load() and ?

C side -
luaL_loadfile() in lauxlib.c
readable() in loadlib.c

I think it would be nice if these exceptions did not exist.

Porting to Lua to systems with different file systems (or multiple file
systems) identifies these exceptions as a pain point. Anyone ideas
for improving this?
