Sorry, I was a bit inaccurate. It uses patterns from
tex/context/patterns/lang-de.pat which have been generated with
    mtxrun --script pattern --convert
that more or less copies contents of hyph-de-1901.tex (should be
1996). And those patterns are more or less a literal copy of
http://repo.or.cz/w/wortliste.git plus maybe some time delay.


PS: in LaTeX there is indeed a difference whether one uses pdfTeX or
XeTeX/LuaTeX since the two engines load differente patterns, but in
ConTeXt I see no reason for a different behaviour.
