Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang.

This works fine, but I’m afraid this is a workaround (I mean, I cannot
even add the the \currentime [not to mention other commands]).

Full expansion would be extremely useful with all features that are
enabled by \setupinteraction.

I reported this issue before:

In any case, I think there is a good use for commands inside interactive
contents in ConTeXt.

Many thanks for your help,
