WHen you are in doubt you can do this:


it will show you that the commands is adapting itself to math mode. 
There are a few such commands with 'clashing' names.

A variant on this is \NC which is the column separator but has a 
different meaning depending on where it's used. That one gets set to 
some meaning in environments.

Another overloaded one is \\ and it could be a space or newline or ...

Actually the last two are candidates for protectiopn against overload.

btw, users can run context with


to see if their usage of commands or definitions bring conflicts. 
Currently \in is not yet protected against overload but it will be.
