[NTG-context] Am not getting Roman numeral page numbers in MKIV

In MKIV, I am still unable to get lower-case Roman numeral page numbers on
the front matter pages, but if I use frontpart in the \defineconversionset
instead of frontmatter, the page numbers in the ToC are converted. Where is
a good explanation of the structureblockenvironment?

%pagenumbers in TOC not converted if frontmatter

\definestructureconversionset[bodymatter:pagenumber] [][numbers]

\definehead [intro][chapter]
\setuphead  [intro][number=no]

%whether frontpart or frontmatter seems to make no difference

     [conversion=romannumerals, location=bottom]

\definecombinedlist [content][intro,chapter,section]



     [conversion=numbers, location=bottom]





\startfrontmatter % errors on startfrontpart

%sample front matter
\input knuth


\input knuth



\input knuth

\setupheadnumber[chapter][0] %resets first chapter number to 1
      conversion=numbers, location=bottom]

\chapter{I Was Born}
\input knuth

\chapter{I Observe}
\input knuth
