It’s no so complicated as you think.

The \startchapter command has two arguments, the first is used for
the chapter argument like title, reference, bookmark etc. and
the second argument, which is optional, for your own values, like
author, subtitle etc.

You can now access these values in your own chapter layout with
\structurevariable for the normal arguments (e.g. title) and
\structureuservariable for your own arguments (e.g. subtitle).

   \NC title     \EQ \structurevariable    {title}     \NC\NR
   \NC reference \EQ \structurevariable    {reference} \NC\NR
   \NC author    \EQ \structureuservariable{author}    \NC\NR
   \NC subtitle  \EQ \structureuservariable{subtitle}  \NC\NR


\startchapter[reference=sec:knuth,title=Knuth][author=Donald E. Knuth,subtitle=ConTeXt Sample File]
\input knuth
