Counterexample to whitespace attached and below:

\setupwhitespace[big]

\starttext
\input ward \par \input ward
\startfootnote
\input ward \par \input ward
\stopfootnote{}
\stoptext

Whitespace is applied in the main text but not in the footnotes. How is  
this case different from global declaration of bidi etc.? It seems these  
elements really do live in their own world now..

Again, what are the general classes of commands and guidelines governing  
what declarations are globally applied and which are not?
