I actually thought about doing just that ;) But it will take more work
than is justified for simply an email reply. And it is a nice teaching
opportunity, so we plan to get back on this topic during the upcoming 
ConTeXt meeting in Kalenberg.

Actually I had a use case for this some years back when I was attempting 
to reproduce old-fashioned woodblock print. But that predated most luatex
development, and I ended up faking the whole thing using \hboxes.
