But to be consistent we would have to do this:

\definehighlight[important][style=bold]

\starttext
\startimportant This is important \stopimportant
\stoptext

For many/most structural elements this might be ok. But doing this with  
every typographical function... at some point the main text (paragraph  
content) just becomes unwieldy and too verbose, even unreadable. Like  
trying to proofread paragraph content in pure xml...

Best wishes
