[NTG-context] \ldots

Hello,
I discovered that with one font the \ldots command typesets three colons  
(:::).

I found these lines in plain.tex

\mathchardef\ldotp="613A % ldot as a punctuation mark
\def\ldots{\mathinner{\ldotp\ldotp\ldotp}}

saying the \ldots uses character on position 3A. In the font (type 1),  
there is really the semicolon on this position.
How to make context to use proper character (\period), which is on  
position 2E in the font without changing this file? Or is it possible to  
use a special glyph for horizontal ellipsis with \ldots command? (It  
exists in the font)

best regads
Jan
