Jose, there really is no problem with performance here.
We've done this wiring of Lua handlers to Windows messages for years (and on very old hardware, too). Never had any problems whatsoever.
So, your particular scenario will work just fine. Don't hold back for fear of lack of speed, and just go for it!
P.S. Of course, if you can come up with something that'll work faster... hey, that's okay too [;-)].
