Maybe the wrong height is calculated?
When we have the normal situation footnote per page, the space available is spilt for text and footnotes. In our margin construction now it seems to be still the same. When we would use the footnotes as endnotes, TeX would calculated the text per page for the entire height.
So is it possible to define the space that is available per page (for text + footnote) as a combination of the normal height plus the space in the margin? I don't have an idea how to code this in plain TeX (or whatever language is used for ConTeXt), but maybe someone else knows?

that's also what I experienced: the code works with very small footnotes. I am working now on a thesis with kind of normal equipment: Some hundred pages, about 900 footnotes with lots of them quite long (seems to be normal nowadays for art-historians). So what to do?
How do you imagine to fit that large footnotes into the margin? Is your margin wider than your text area?
That's not the problem. Don't forget that I just posted a minimal example to show the generel effect as also seen by Willi. In my documents the figures are different of course: the footnote size is smaller, the margin space higher etc.
So it's not the problem that the footnotes don't fit. It's more that they are *still below* the text as before - now as empty space.
(You can easily make the test: Take a regular document with footnotes per page below the text. Then use the code to get the footnotes in the margin. You will see that the body text doesn't change at all. It's just the notes moving and leaving empty space behind)
