Okay, I noticed a second thing, in the [serif][cond][size] and other
[size] typescripts: you define things like \tfc with the intention of
"typeface-condensed". This will interfere with people who rely on the
conventional interpretation of "typeface-at-size-C".

That's one of the things that make this tricky territory. I'm not
satisfied with most of the solutions I find, most of the time. I'd like
an orderly way of dealing with extra weights and shapes that 1) fit in
the "ConTeXt Way," 2) work well with other peoples' setups 3) is rational
and 4) extensible. Fontvariants were one step in that direction, but I
recognise that it's not a complete solution by any means.
