The MWE below does all this, but for the appendices the number overflows the 12mm width, which is ugly of course. So I need to specify either a width with some stretch so the list layout will adapt, or somehow be able to specify a different width for the appendix entries.

\define[1]\ChapterlistNumber
{\dowithnextbox
{\ifdim\nextboxwd<12mm
\simplealignedbox{12mm}{flushleft}{\flushnextbox}%
\else
\simplealignedbox{30mm}{flushleft}{\flushnextbox}%
\fi}
\hbox{#1}}

\setuplist
[chapter]
[width=0pt,
label=yes,
alternative=c,
numbercommand=\ChapterlistNumber]
