The virtue of the Context system of font specification lies in the ability to 
change sizes with \tfb, \tfx etc. For a single size used for e.g, title page 
I use a regular TeX \font statement.  For example after I fought through the 
AGaramond problem for body fonts, with great help from this list, I still 
retained some additional special statements like:

\font\MySans uhvbo8r at 30pt
\font\BigSans uhvb8r at 30pt
\font\MedSans uhvb8r at 20pt

This is a bit tedious but pretty much mistake proof.  And the call for each 
variant is simple.
