Taco, thanks for the explanation!

So, this makes the item called: "How can I get the “oldstyle numbers” 
(text figures) in a document?" on wiki.contextgarden.net no longer 
valid, right!

Changes are difficult to figure out, when you're not very good at the 
details. Keeping the wiki up-to-date is a huge task and certainly not a 
trivial thing!

Please don't misunderstand me. I don't want to criticise the way the 
wiki is maintained. On the contrary, it's a great tool, and we users 
very much depend on it.

However for getting the oldstyle numerals working again, I needed this 
mailing list!

If I'm wrong please feel free to comment on all this. Thanks again!
