Hi Joshua,
I suspect it can be done in the old system, albeit by some tricks that are maybe unworthy of ConTeXt.
I have not tried using small caps because I use a font that does't have them but I think it would be doable.

There a in fact two tricks. The first is to put everything in the "booklet" category and enter everything except author names, year of publication and city (or publisher) in the title. 
The second is to make a .bbl file and edit that, including ordering small caps where you want them, just as in a normal .tex-file. In your project you input the edited .bbl-file, not the .bib-file.

This way you can use all the nice  mechanisms of ConTeXt for citing, footnotes and bibliography without having to bother with the tweaking of codes.

I have done it this way for my wife's PhD thesis and it works perfectly.

Best regards,
Robert Blackstone
