I think approach you described is absolutely correct use case of lua.

Lua is great for research and prototyping. It's portable and flexible.
(Speed is just side effect from it's simplicity and effective
implementation by Lua team.)

JIT is more complex performance-oriented implementation for production
workflow where lua code supplied from end users or machine-generated
from variable input.

Compiled-language implementation is final point for proven prototypes.
