yes, of course (I presumed this to be not necessary here):

    [incrementnumber=yes, number=no]
    \setuplist[subsection][width=2.25em, margin=1.5em] %`margin' determines  
\subject{this subject messes up the further enumeration of numbered  
\section{this should be sec. 1}
\subsection{this should be subsec. 1.1}
\section{this should be sec. 2}
\subject{this subject does no harm...}

In my real life example the first `subject', e.g., contains a Glossary of  
abbreviations and I want to start the actual enumeration with the body  
text proper (Introduction and onwards), while still listing the glossary  
in the ToC. and I did not find any other (general) solution in the docs,  
how to include unnumbered sections in the ToC...

thx, joerg
