If the only place you use 9pt font is footnotes then something like
this should also work
Since you use n=0, you can also do
command=, % this disables the superscript
n=0] % footnote block as a single paragraph

Since you are working with line=11pt it does not make a difference.
I was thinking of line=1.2ex (or something) where it matters what is
the current font size.
If n=0 is not set, and you use absolute font sizes, it will work in
With n=0, things are a bit different. n=0 uses \starttextnotes instead
of \setcolumnnotes and both work differently. So, with n=0, you need
it in setupnotes.

It is not too hard to add. For fun, try
with default settings. (this of course is not a good idea, especially
in this case, when there are other workarounds)

Yes. What I reasoned was that interline space should be set for each

Forget about what I said earlier. n=0 uses a different setup
Hans, does it make sense to interface interlinespace in footnotes? Or
add a \everyfootnotebodyfontswitch token?
