I'm dealing with a 500 page book (if you give me your github username, I'll
happily add you to the repo) and many of these problems emerge only at
scale. (when I render individual chapters, there are no issues, but when
rendering the whole book, the tables just have all sorts of formatting
issues.)

Here's a working example

% engine=luajittex
\startenvironment env_trap
\enableregime[utf-8]
\setupcolors[state=start]
\setupreferencing[autofile=yes]
\setupinteraction[state=start, color=blue, contrastcolor=blue, style={\tf}]
\usemodule[simplefonts]

\usemodule[database]
% Enable hyperlinks

\setuppapersize [A4][A4]
\definepapersize[standing][A4][A4]
\definepapersize[lying][A4,landscape][A4]
\setuplayout    [width=middle,  backspace=.75in, cutspace=.75in,
                 height=middle, topspace=.5in, bottomspace=.5in]

\setupbodyfont[11pt]

\setupwhitespace[none]

\setupcaption[table][location=top]
\setupcaptions[style={\tfx}, width=.9\textwidth,align=middle]

   \unprotect
   \appendtoks
     \setupbackgrounds[\v!page][\c!background=\makeupparameter\c!background]
   \to \t_page_makeup_every_setup
   \protect


\defineseparatedlist[CSV]
  [separator={,},
   quotechar={"},
   left=\bTD,right=\eTD,
   first=\bTR,last=\eTR,
   before=\bTABLE,after=\eTABLE]


\setupTABLE[c][each][align=flushleft,style={\tfx},width=fit]
\setupTABLE[r][1][background=color,backgroundcolor=gray,style={\tf}]
\setupTABLE[align=middle]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

\stopenvironment

\starttext

\placetable[here][tab01]{Kazanlak site numbers, aggregate area and average
area
through through time}{
\setupTABLE[c][each][align=middle,style={\tfx},alignmentcharacter={.},aligncharacter=yes]
\chardef\characteralignmentmode=2
\startCSV
Period,NL,Chl,EBA,LBA,EIA,LIA,RM,LA,BYZ,MA,OTT
Aggregate Area (ha),1.5,2.9,5.0,6.7,21.5,43.3,54.9,31.2,24.4,30.7,94.9
Site Count,3,6,10,7,23,38,23,19,15,21,15
Avg Area (ha),0.5,0.5,0.5,1.0,0.9,1.1,2.4,1.6,1.6,1.5,6.3
\stopCSV
}

\stoptext

And I wasn't able to cause it to fail via a trivial 'making it a component'
and calling it from a project.
