[NTG-context] Label problems with \definelabel and \defineenumeration, in and out of footnotes

The example below documents the problems. In short, \definelabel 
suppresses paragraph indent when the label is at the beginning of a 
paragraph and fails to print the label or generate references with 
alternative=inmargin (or inright, or inleft) when in a footnote.

\defineenumeration fails to work in a footnote.

    \definelabel   [ID][
    \starttitle[title={Label testing}]
    \startsubject[title={Problems with \tex{definelabel}}]

       This is a test. It is only a test.

       \ID[id1]This paragraph should be indented, with an ID number
         in the margin. When \tex{ID} is placed at the beginning of the
         paragraph, as it is here, the paragraph is not indented.

       This paragraph has a footnote.\footnote{%
           \ID[id2]The ID number is not printed in the margin with
             {\tt alternative=inright}, {\tt alternative=inmargin},
             or {\tt alternative=inleft}. Without any {\tt
             alternative} the ID number is printed where the macro
             appears. The positioning is unsatisfactory using {\tt
         } The footnote has an ID number which should be printed in the
         right margin.

       This \ID[id3]paragraph has an ID, but it is not at the beginning
         of the paragraph and the paragraph is properly indented. The
         value of the ID number indicates that \tex{ID} in the footnote
         of the previous paragraph incremented the associated counter,
         but the failure of the references (\tex{in} and \tex{at}) to id2
         suggests that there are other problems.

         ID id#1 is \in[id#1] and is on page \at[id#1].\par}

       References for footnotes are generated without \tt{alternative=}.

    \startsubject[title={Problems with \tex{defineenumeration}}]

       When \tex{definelabel} is changed to \tex{defineenumeration},
         the example fails to compile. It does not properly handle
         the \tex{ID} in the footnote, complaining of an extra \} or
         forgotten \tex{endgroup}.
