palets ... the trailing comma is actually an error but anyway we can have:

\def\colo_palets_define_one#1#2% get rid of { }
   {\doifassignmentelse{#2} % catch empty entries
      {\colo_palets_define_two{#1}[#2]}
      {\colo_palets_define_three{#1}{#2}}}

\def\colo_palets_define_three#1#2%
   {\ifcsname\??colorpaletspecification#2\endcsname
 
\processcommacommand[\csname\??colorpaletspecification#2\endcsname]{\colo_palets_define_one{#1}}%
    \fi}

which then also supports:

\setupcolors [x11]

\definepalet [colorful] [primary=green]

\definepalet [bleak] [primary=darkgray,colorful]

\starttext
     \setuppalet [colorful]
     \color[primary]{Ain’t I a colorful entity?}
     \setuppalet [bleak]
     \color[primary]{Ain’t I a colorful entity?}
\stoptext

i.e. a hidden feature of referencing to already defined palets.
