Partly my fault. I requested some of the features that are in that article 
but haven't really tested them in MkIV.

Adding the missing options to the wiki is a good start. Currently, there 
is no syncing between the wiki and the cont-en.xml file (in 
texmf-context/tex/context/interface) that was used to generate that 
content. You could simulaneously add the appropriate keys to cont-en.xml 
and send the diff file to Hans. (There were plans to reimplement that in 
lua, but I do not know what is the current state of it).

It will be nice to have a comprehensive wiki page on enumerations.
