Pagebreak of formula across pagebreaks is broken in the new release 
(ConTeXt  ver: 2006.04.27 15:59).

\placeformula \startformula \startalign
   {\NC a \NC  = b \NR[+]}
\stopalign \stopformula

(This used to work earlier, I can not test this, but I have document 
where the display broke across pages. Can somewith with an old ~ Mar, 
2006 release test this?)

Also, is it possible to have more control over where the display 
breaks. With latex, I can force equation break by using

\allowdisplaybreaks %<------------ Try with and without this.
   a &= b \\
% Paste the above line 50 times
   a &= b

Ideally, context should also provide something configurable. Maybe, it 
should be part of 

Also there should be something like

\NC .... \NR
\allowdisplaybreak[yes|no|disable...same meaning as in \page[....]
\NC ..... \NR

to have more control over the pagebreak.
