Also the ConTeXt parts are more integrated than the LaTeX packages are
-- think of the discussions/comments about what order LaTeX packages
must be loaded.  For example, the hyperref manual says to load it last
"to give it a fighting chance of not being over-written, since its job
is to redefine many LaTeX commands."

And ConText is also an example of the free-software philosophy of
"release often", sometimes twice a day!
