Line numbering is a delayed operation. As they are handled when the page
is constructed the settings of that moment apply. In practice only the
start key is handled when you pass settings to \start.... (the only
reason for  having the second argument is number start/restart etc). If
you want different renderings, the best is to define a specific instance
of line numbering. Maybe a future version will be more clever.
