it's a matter of lack of tex families; once we have bold, something else 
has to be dropped

i can imagine a setup with bold and normal alongside but no slanted, 
italic, bolditalic then;

the best thing (nowadays) is to have two typefaces defined, one normal, 
and one bold

future versions of context may have more support (soon pdftex will have 
 >16 families)

btw, one of the problems is that several passed over the math list are 
made, which means that font switches are not treated as in text (think 
of \bf test \sl test)

(i dunno if that can be solved in future tex's)
