I have no idea how it works, then. I'll try to work through it.
Thanks so much for this!

Okay, I'll admit that here it makes no sense to me. I'm guessing that
fox:dtf is the namespace for these mappings, but I don't see how "serif"
or "sans" (contained in \foxfamily) gets input into that mapping!

I am. 
I'm really close to completing a little module that extends ContML's
structural markup for the purpose of handling exports from a very nice
outliner[1]. It's a nice author's tool in its current form, and getting
quick ConTeXt markup is about as easy as an XSLT script (which has been
getting most of my attention).

The attached t-oo seems to be all I need for those formats so far. Early
days, though.

Okay, done.

Thanks again. I still don't get the mapping, though!
