[NTG-context] Referencing footnotes by SECTION

Dear gang,

When referencing footnotes that reset each chapter, is there a way to  
include the chapter information? See attached and below:

\setuphead[chapter]   [alternative=normal,conversion=R]


\setupreferencestructureprefix [section] [default]


\input ward
\input ward

See \in{Footnote}[footnote2].
\input ward

\input ward
\input ward
\input ward

See \in{Footnote}[footnote1].

If line 8 is commented -
- we get what we expect. But if line 8 is activated, we get an ambiguity:  
Both references give back

  "Footnote 1"

Whereas what we would like is something like this:

  Footnote  I.1

i.e., Chapter I, Footnote 1 - for the first footnote; and

  Footnote II.1

i.e., Chapter II, Footnote 1 - for the second footnote.

Is there a straightforward way to do this?

[[Of course, for the roman chapter numbering we also run into the  
reference-numberconversionset issue of the other thread, where

\setupreferencestructureprefix [section] [default]

doesn't seem to work.]]

Thank you in advance for any guidance or pointers you can provide!
