[NTG-context] New typescript mechanism for weights/opticals?

Hi,

I like Mojcas idea for new typescripts:

%%%%%%%%%%%
\startsomenewfonttypescriptcommand [kepler]
  [width={condensed,semicondensed,*regular,extended}]
  [size={caption,*regular,subhead,display},switch={10pt,12pt,17pt}]
  [weight={light,*regular,medium,semibold,*bold,black}]
  ...
%%%%%%%%%%%
\switchtofontdimension[width=semicondensed,weight={light,medium}]
%%%%%%%%%%%

That would make different weight/opticals font handling much less cumbersome.
At the moment its no fun dealing with weights/opticals.

I really would appreciate that (or any other easy usable) solution that
provides a standardized way to handle weights/opticals with not too much
overhead.

Regards
Marco
