In the real world, a UA Console/DAW or UA Luna/DAW codependency will need to be maintained for a long time to come if not indefinitely. Add to that the major investment many have made in complete VI solutions like Arturia Collection, Native Instruments Komplete, etc, hybrid tracking is a requirement that needs to be improved, not glossed over with UA-Centric solution.
On launch, Luna will support AU plugins. I would assume that will also include instruments. So I don't know why you would think you will only be able to use UAD's instruments.
