[NTG-context] registers: subentry indentation different from word--number gap?

I don't think the current behavior is a bug, so the following is a
With the following fairly minimal example
the distance parameter sets (1) the hanging indentation of the 'yyz'
subentry and also (2) the distance between an entry and its pagenumber.
(That's what a look at strc-reg.mkiv shows too.)
It's a matter of taste, but my eye thinks that 0.5em is right for no. 2,
but too small for no. 1 -- whereas the default (1em) is just right for
no. 1 but too large for no. 2.
Thus, could the two dimensions be decoupled and bcome settable
indepently? Perhaps keep 'distance' for the entry--pagenumber distance
(no. 2), which is its meaning on the wiki, and invent 'subdistance' for
the hanging indent (no. 1)?
I've just realized a cheap hack to do the same, so maybe it's not worth
messing with backward compatability by adding a new parameter. The hack:
\setupregister[index][indicator=no, distance=1em, textcommand=\blah]
