Hello Walter,

seems to me something which could be done using columnsets. (But I 
didn't use them yet.)

See here:
https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Columns#Column_Sets

And in the manual
http://www.pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/columns.pdf
see especially the examples on pages 11 and 13-14.

Best regards, Oliver.
