as column setup for TABLEs by "\setupTABLE[c][width=1in]" is handy and is used frequently, would it be possible to provide identical mechanism for xtables?
From what I read in the manual, setting width of a column for xtable is provided by \startxcell[width=...] at the place of the first cell-in-that-column usage.
Moreover, when xtable is built in two passes, in the first pass it might take a column (width) specification(s), if provided, and keep on reading xcell specification(s), considering xcell width, if provided.
I guess to be handy to implement both \setupTABLE[c][...] and \setupxtable[c][...] in a similar way, especially when there is a simple mechanism which allows TABLE/xtable switching (ntb-to-xtb module).
