Update: this also works ---  and it's better

\setupbackend
  [format={pdf/a-1a:2005},
   profile={default_cmyk.icc,default_rgb.icc,default_gray.icc},
   intent={ISO coated v2 300\letterpercent\space (ECI)}]

%% Tagged PDF
%% method=auto ==> default tags by Adobe
\setuptagging[state=start]
\setupstructure[state=start,method=auto]
