Multiple versions, LuaJIT, different implementations, etc.

It makes sense to split source code and bytecode, but bytecode is an implementation detail and should be registered by each Lua implementation, *if they want to*. LuaJIT is the only Lua implementation that treats bytecode as part of the API.

Source code should also accept "versions" rather than "version": you can write Lua code that runs on all of Lua 5.1 to Lua 5.3, as long as it's in source form.

    That could be signalled by text/lua (source code) or application/lua
