Solved with a dirty hack:

\startbuffer[text]
<p>A paragraph with a fraction made of text with styles:
<span class="fraction">a <i>fraction</i> made of text/with 
<red><b>nested</b> styles</red> inside</span>.</p>
\stopbuffer

\startluacode
local gsub = string.gsub
local sfind = string.find
local xmlflush = lxml.flush

local startTextFraction = "$\\frac{\\text{"
local stopTextFraction  = "}}$"

function xml.functions.textfraction( t )
   local dt = t.dt
   inspect( dt )
   local wrapper
   local slashfound = false
   context( startTextFraction )
   local index, child
   for index, child in ipairs( dt ) do
     if type( child ) == "string" then
       if not slashfound and sfind( child, "/" ) then
         context( gsub( child, "/", "}}{\\text{" ) )
         slashfound = true
       else
         context( child )
       end
     elseif type( child ) == "table" then
       wrapper = {
         __parent__ = child.__parent__,
         at = {},
         dt = child
       }
       child.__parent__ = wrapper
       xmlflush( wrapper )
     end
   end
   context( stopTextFraction )
end
\stopluacode

\startxmlsetups xml:textsetups
   \xmlsetsetup{#1}{*}{+}
   \xmlsetsetup{#1}{p|i|b|red}{xml:*}
   \xmlsetsetup{#1}{{span.fraction}}{xml:fraction}
\stopxmlsetups

\xmlregistersetup{xml:textsetups}

\startxmlsetups xml:p
   \xmlflush{#1}\par
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xml:i
   {\it \xmlflush{#1}}
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xml:red
   {\red \xmlflush{#1}}
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xml:b
   {\bf \xmlflush{#1}}
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xml:fraction
   \xmlfunction{#1}{textfraction}
\stopxmlsetups

\starttext
   \xmlprocessbuffer{main}{text}{}
\stoptext
