[NTG-context] caption in margin

self-answering (for the record)

rightmargin / leftmargin has to be used in combination with an additional position keyword (low, middle, key), otherwise the caption is missing. 
I think a default position (low) would be nice in this case.

Best Michael

this works:

\useMPlibrary[dum]

\starttext

\showframe

\setupcaption [figure][]
\placefloat[][]{default}{\externalfigure[dummy][]}

\setupcaption [figure][location={rightmargin,low}]
\placefloat[][]{right}{\externalfigure[dummy][]}
