Not sure there is a FAQ here: the topic varies.

Yes, works fine.

Not at the moment.  For XeTeX, I'm not sure there would be so much to do
(port fontspec, basically).  For LuaTeX, my impression is that LaTeX3
will not use any Lua features in the LaTeX kernel. There is already too
much work to do to get LaTeX3 finished as it is.
