Thank you Adam for your suggestion. Your naming convention has a logic. 
The reason why I do not use it is that I utilized work of Petr Olsak. I 
am using all *.tfm, *.map and *.enc files. I believe it is not a 
drawback for ConTeXt but it is advantage for me: do not prepare hundreds 
of metric files.

Answer: math family 2 (Math-Symbols) needs extended (math) metric. So I 
switched back to cmsy10. The same for family 3 (Math-Extension).

Interesting, I used it.

It is incorporated like \UCtilde{I}. But hardly needed for Storm since 
nearly all imaginable accented letter are pressent as a single glyph.
I only defined this way: Ygrave, Ytilde, Ibreve, Ycaron, Etilde.
For details, see enco-st1.tex or enco-st2.tex
