[NTG-context] Misnamed parameter in \setuppagenumbering?

Dear list,

On TeX.SX there was a question about why ConTeXt starts the document with a left instead of a right
page.  Turns out the OP merely confused "marginedge" with "inmargin".  However, that made me wonder,
is "marginedge" perhaps misnamed when it does not place the pagenumber in the margin close to the
edge of the page?  I think it should be named "marginspine" instead.  The below MWE should
illustrate the problem.

Cheers, Henri

\starttext
Behold the pagenumber on the left
\stoptext
