[NTG-context] superior footnotes

Dear posse,

1. With footnotes, is there yet a way to define the starting numeral-mark? 
Say, I want my first footnote incremented so that the first notemark is , not 
`1' then `2', but `1234' then `1235', etc.

2. I tried a workaround:

\setupfootnotes [conversion=set 1234]

but a spurious numeral `1' gets typeset alongside the notemark. What am I 

Finally, the ConTeXt footnote mechanism does not (afaik) take into account 
superior numerals. We need a setup option, e.g.

\setupfootnotes [numeral=superior]%inferior, normal, with 
% normal as default

to cut off the mechanism for automatically raising and reducing the size of 
the numeral (\high I presume). Yes, there is the empty (text)command=<empty> 
trick, but to use superior numerals all this should not be necessary.

Thnx as always
