There is still a use for the old table macros because it’s easier to set small tables (alignment in the preamble versus many \setupTABLE settings), you can set different spacing between rows which is not part of tabulate and you can span cells (also not supported in tabulate).

To make the environment more attractive you should use the tabulate mechanism for background colors (\BC[...] and \VL[...]) and a indent option would be usefull to indent the table in a narrower environment and in itemize.
