While Pandoc does NOT input asciidoc, i use Asciidoc FX, as a previewer, and it also exports out to html, pdf, and i think you can get it to export to DocBook.

With DocBook, or html, you could take those into Pandoc and out to whatever you want. Kind of an extra step. But as i use Asciidoc FX all the time anyway, not that big of an extra step.

Yes, or, as i said above, use Asciidoc and Asciidoc FX, and then convert that to html, and then take that to Pandoc.

IMO, if you are debating on learning Context, i think that would be a good use of your time.
