[NTG-context] How to extend btx rendering?

Alan,

I noticed that there are some difficulties.  The patched version of
`publ-imp-aps.mkvi` behaves unexpected.  The year in the @electronic
citation is now missing a space and an opening parenthesis.
Furthermore, when I place hyperlinks the color Ā»spills overĀ«, see
attached.  The link is only on the string `arXiv:1607.04624` but the
whole line is coloured.  Below is some minimal code to reproduce using
ConTeXt in TL2016.

Cheers,
Henri
