well, mkiii is something virtual -)

pdftex/xetex support is in the tex+mkii files
luatex       support is in the tex+mkiv files

the deviattion of xetex from pdftex is currently not large enough to add 
mkiii files

the context zip will always have it all

sure, when i make zips i add the bins that i use

however, in the near future minimals will be delivered differently, 
rsynced from the contextgarden and optionally be way more minimal, esp 
with regards to fonts:

pdftex: no opentype, less afm files, gyre instead of old, lm type1 (only 
encodings that make sense)

xetex: only opentype + math

luatex: idem

of course one can merge all
