For standard fonts you do not need to include any map file. If you 
really need to incorporate something to format, put it to 
cont-(cz|en).tex or look to the context.tex.

My Czech setup for:
   format: cont-en
   input regime: il2
   font|hyphenation encoding: ec

IFAIK there is no native font encoding since ConTeXt tries to maintain 
many languages with different hyphenation patterns needed to encode.
Czech hyphenation pattern for Czech language is in ec encoding in 
cont-en format.

P.S. Czech support in ConTeXt is far from optimal; after I will finnish 
the real big publication I will summarize it. No time for that now I am 
  a month late.
