 Thanks a lot Willi,

Sorry for the late reply. Actually, for a while I couldn't make it work.
But It seems it was just my \dosetuparrangement that was wrong.

Now it works. Here it is, cleaned-up:

\installpagearrangement 2*5*double*2*5
{\dosetuparrangement{2}{5}{10}{3}{6}
 % number of pages on the x axis,
 % number of pages on the y axis,
 % total (?),
 % number of cutmarks on the x axis,
 % number of cutmarks on the y axis,
 \pusharrangedpageTWOFIVEDOUBLESIDED\poparrangedpagesAB\relax}
\def\pusharrangedpageTWOFIVEDOUBLESIDED#1%
{\advancearrangedpageN
\reportarrangedpage\arrangedpageN
\ifcase\arrangedpageN
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}000\arrangedpageA % 1
 % Numbers starting from 0:
 % rotation state,
 % horizontal placement,
 % vertical placement.
\\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}010\arrangedpageB % 2
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}010\arrangedpageA % 3
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}000\arrangedpageB % 4
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}001\arrangedpageA % 5
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}011\arrangedpageB % 6
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}011\arrangedpageA % 7
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}001\arrangedpageB % 8
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}002\arrangedpageA % 9
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}012\arrangedpageB % 10
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}012\arrangedpageA % ...
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}002\arrangedpageB %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}003\arrangedpageA %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}013\arrangedpageB %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}013\arrangedpageA %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}003\arrangedpageB %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}004\arrangedpageA %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}014\arrangedpageB %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}014\arrangedpageA %
\or \handlearrangedpageXandY{#1}004\arrangedpageB %
 \poparrangedpages
\fi}

\definepapersize[Vignette][width=80.0mm,height=50.0mm]
\setuppapersize [Vignette][A4]
\setuparranging [2*5*double*2*5]
\setuplayout
 [margin=0pt,
 location=middle,
 marking=on]

\showframe
\starttext
\dorecurse{20}{\vbox to \textheight{\vfill\midaligned{\tfd ABC}\vfill}\page}
\stoptext


My aim is to have something as plain as possible
so I can modify it quickly to print double-sided cards, more likely from an image,
instead of using some clumsy wysiwyg editor.
Next thing is to find a sensible name for the layout. I'm not sure about the 2*5*double*2*5 name.
Thanks again.
