When you a unnumbered section with the list alternatives a-c your're out 
of luck with the regular \setuplist options because it always use a 
width of 0pt for regular section number. The aligntitle works only for 
numbered entries to align them when you disable the number entry in the TOC.

To show the section entry and align all entries on the same line you can 
use the following method:

   1. Set the width and distance for the section number to 0pt.

   2. Set the margin key to a value large enough to fit all numbers

   3. Apply a command to the numbercommand key where you shift the 
number to the left in the margin area you set in the previous step

%%%% end example
