This has come up a few times on this list. Hans has stated a reluctance 
to make a change or add an option to discard the unused vertical space 
(see https://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context@ntg.nl/msg21273.html from 
March 2007, and most recently 
https://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context@ntg.nl/msg86872.html in January 
2018).

The workaround that Hans suggests in that last post , adding the flag 
'high', almost resolves the issue in your example.
