Both are extensions from my point of view.
Even if math is "typical" for TeX, it's not typical for ConTeXt.
I think the typical university user is content with LaTeX.
ConTeXt is for those who like to design their own layout.
I seldom need any formula - TeX/ConTeXt is for me simply the
system of choice for big documents (books), presentations and
(For most of my work I use InDesign.)

Yes, that's confusing.
I made an overview in my german docs, will transfer it to the Wiki soon.

The KOMA classes are an enhanced replacement for the standard LaTeX=20
my Markus Kohm. If you use LaTeX it's a pity if you don't know them!

Again, I don't think that bibliographies are basic.
But I'm no scientific user.
