Don't know, but I am pretty sure that layers are used all over the place. 
In most of my documents, I set the layers in an evironment file, which is 
often loaded before \starttext.

Oh, that is a bigger problem. That means that the first thing in a style 
should be font loading... if nothing else then just \setupbodyfont[11pt].

Perhaps \setlayer (or even \hbox!!) should issue a warning if the fonts 
have not been loaded yet.
