[NTG-context] white space after a float in a column

Dear list members,

I am struggling with floats in a two-column layout. I understand that there are three up-to-date mechanisms for columns: columnsets, pagecolumns and pagegrids.

However, in neither setup I succeed in producing some extra vertical whitespace after the float if a caption is omitted (i.e. location=none in \setupcaption).

My example:





 % no value for spaceafter seems to work





	\input knuth \par



		\input tufte \par


	\input knuth \par


If 'columnset' is replaced everywhere by 'pagecolumns' or by 'pagegrid' through a find-and-replace operation, the result remains identical.

Is it possible to insert more vertical white space after the intermezzo?

A secondary remark: \placeintermezzo always puts the framed text at the top of the next column, no matter whether the parameter is top or bottom. But this is not a big deal.
