context does not use that file (plain may use it) we can indeed use 
enco-utf for plain as well (also defines some named chars)

context does not depend on any tex file outside the base path

enco-utf uses info from unicode tables (character categories)

depends, if we don't use these new features .. (yet)

because i cannot imagine a macro package to use the content of that file

well, only is if it is not adding too much to the minimals, (and formats 
to be generated by users)

if you want such formats, we need dedicated files to make them, like 
pdftex-plain.tex and such (after all, we want predictable stuff) for 
initializing them
