[NTG-context] MKIV caption separator, revisited

Has any progress been made in the past few years implementing modifiable 
separators for captions under MKIV? This was raised as an issue by (at 
least) Mojca Miklavec in December 2010 
(http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context%40ntg.nl/msg51542.html) and by 
Andy Thomas 18 months later 
(http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context%40ntg.nl/msg63937.html). (Their 
issues with stopper have been resolved. In MKIV it is numberstopper.)

Here is an MWE demonstrating the problem. It compiles cleanly, but the 
separator remains the default period. With MKII, it generates a figure 
with a hyphen and not a period.

    \setupcaptions[separator=-]
    \setupexternalfigures[location=default]
    \starttext
    \chapter{Chaptername}
    \section{Sectionname}
    \placefigure[here][fig:1]{Caption}{\externalfigure[cow.pdf]}
    \in{See Figure}{.}[fig:1]
    \stoptext
