This would lead to other side effects shown in the following example.

When you use the global whitespace settings in footnotes you get the 
same space between each footnote entry. What can be done is to add a 
whitespace key to setupnote which is easier than using setups-environment.

\definedescription[Spaced][before=,after=]

\starttext

\startSpaced
First entry.
\stopSpaced

\startSpaced
Second entry.
\stopSpaced

\blank[2*line]

\setupwhitespace[big]

\startSpaced
Third entry.
\stopSpaced

\startSpaced
Fourth entry.
\stopSpaced

\stoptext
