Based on ideas from the forthcoming book "context mkiv -- Fonts":

% note: I have deleted all lines except the relevant ones for defining
% the semi bold alternatives

\definefontalternative [sb]
\definefontalternative [si]

\definebodyfont [default] [ss]
  [sb=SansSemiBold sa 1,
   si=SansSemiBoldItalic sa 1]

\starttypescript [sans] [myriadpro]
   \definefontsynonym [MyriadPro-SemiBold]  [name:myriadprosemibold]
   \definefontsynonym [MyriadPro-SemiBoldIt][name:myriadprosemiboldit]

\starttypescript [sans] [myriadpro]
   \definefontsynonym [SansSemiBold]         [MyriadPro-SemiBold]
   \definefontsynonym [SansSemiBoldItalic]   [MyriadPro-SemiBoldIt]

\starttypescript [myriadpro]
\definetypeface [myriadpro] [ss] [sans]     [myriadpro] [default]




\sb Hello
\si Italic
