FYI, the TeX Live 2015 version from 2007 called context-latex-math.pdf does not have ch. 8.

I get errors when using \MC - see example below.

But the spacing is wrong: too much between the two components. These are not cases, but aligned formulas: one might have a number of alignments, not just one. And I just happen to use left braces on them.


 J^j:\startmathcases\NC ω^0 \MC → 0 \NR \NC ω^j \MC → 0 \stopmathcases \quad
  \startmathcases \NC ω^k \MC → ω^l \NR \NC ω^l \MC → -ω^k \stopmathcases
