[NTG-context] Quirk with \userpagenumber, datasets and the .tuc file

Here's an odd quirk...

I wanted to get at some of my dataset data for use outside of ConTeXt so I thought I would just extract it from the .tuc file. MWE:

  \definedataset [MyDS][delay=yes]
  \input tufte
  \setdataset [MyDS]
    [ title={Test title},

In the TUC file I get:

     ["page"]="1\\relax ",
     ["title"]="Test title",

Note the \\relax following the page number. This isn't a problem for me at the moment but I wondered if it is something that needs to be looked at?
