[NTG-context] Modes in tables

Thank you Wolfgang.

When comparing the results between tabulate and TABLE, I noticed some different results in formatting.

1. When using TABLE the table text is slightly shifted to the right. My initial guess was that this is due to the frame thickness but setting rulethickness= 0pt did not solve this. 
How can I get the text in the table to align with the regular text?

2. In both cases column widths of 6cm and 3 cm have been set. Yet, the results show a difference in column width (not sure which one is correct)

3. The vertical space between the regular text and the start of the table varies. It is larger when using tabulate.

4. The vertical space between the lines in the table text also varies. It is larger when using TABLE.

(I left out the modes in MWE below because I don’t think it is relevant here.)

\starttext

\setupwhitespace[big]

\startsetups [tablesetups]
    \setupTABLE [start]      [frame=off, rulethickness=0pt]
    \setupTABLE [column] [1] [width=6cm,align=flushleft]
    \setupTABLE [column] [2] [width=3cm,align=flushleft]
\stopsetups

Calculate the hydrostatic pressure of the following fluid.
\par
\bTABLE [setups=tablesetups]
    \bTR
        \bTD Well depth     \eTD
        \bTD 10100 ft       \eTD
        \bTD 3100 m         \eTD
    \eTR
    \bTR
        \bTD Fluid density  \eTD
        \bTD 9.0 ppg        \eTD
        \bTD 1.08 kg/l      \eTD
    \eTR
\eTABLE

Calculate the hydrostatic pressure of the following fluid.
\starttabulate[|lw(6cm)|lw(3cm)|p|]
\NC Well depth          \NC 10100 ft    \NC 3100 m	        \NC \NR
\NC Fluid density       \NC 9.0 ppg     \NC 1.08 kg/l	    \NC \NR
\stoptabulate

\stoptext
