My 2 cents:

Context has more coherent design, more control of page layout, more
choice of font sizes, more direct control of pretty much everything.

The automatic iterated construction of TOC, index, references, etc
is nice too.

The docs I build are subject to various formatting requirements laid
down in law.  They are feasible in both OpenOffice and Context but
they are not feasible in Latex without a great deal of work.
