Yup. You seem to be the first to have noticed (or complained), as well.

That's the key, though, it apparently pulls in the text accents as well,
and changes the math definitions depending on the text encoding. That
seems rather opposite to how ConTeXt *should* work.

Let's open this up to Hans and Taco: any idea? Much of the finer points
of \definemathsymbol et al are voodoo to me.
The fourth/sixth arguments of \definemathsymbol insist on a (hex) number
to be in that slot. Anything else (like \textmacron) is a no-go.
So right now, Euler is limited by the math mechanisms/the encoding of
the font. I can imagine two "solutions" of differing hack-ish natures:
1) Allow further expansion in \definemathsymbol:
\definemathsymbol [breve] [accent] [tf] [\textbreve]
2) Do a hack following LaTeX's imperfect lead:
\definemathsymbol [breve] [accent] [tf] ["15] % for texnansi
\definemathsymbol [breve] [accent] [tf] ["08] % for ec
