On the console you see the pagenumbers right? What you need is the
realpage. You could actually do something:

\dorecurse{10}{\samplefile{tufte}\page}
\appendetoks
\writestatus{!!!!!}{}
\writestatus{!!!!!}{SPLIT HERE: \the\realpageno}
\writestatus{!!!!!}{}
\to \everystoptext
\dorecurse{10}{\samplefile{tufte}\page}

and then use this number in:

context --extra=select --selection=1:4    oeps.pdf --once --autopdf
context --extra=select --selection=5:9999 oeps.pdf --once --autopdf

(We can actually relate tags to pages so maybe I will make something to
pick that up from the tuc file.)
