[NTG-context] Can I just put a footnote without marking in the main text?

I found a way to wrap everything before \startdocument, so I think this
looks like a template more or less:

In case anyone is interested, here's the MWE:

\definenote[address]
\setupnote[address][rule=off,location=text]


\setupnotation[footnote][numberconversion=numerals]

\definenote[putjustmark]
\setupnote[putjustmark][location=none]
\setupnotation[putjustmark][numberconversion=set 2]


\definenote[putjustnote][footnote]
\setupnote[putjustnote][textcommand=\gobbleoneargument]
\setupnotation[putjustnote][numberconversion=set 2]

\newif\ifnoteintitle
\newtoks\titlefootnotes

\titlefootnotes\emptytoks


\def\thanks#1{\noteintitletrue\putjustmark{#1}\doglobal\appendtoks
\putjustnote{#1} \to \titlefootnotes}
\def\email#1{\noteintitletrue\putjustmark{#1}\doglobal\appendtoks
\putjustnote{#1} \to \titlefootnotes}

\def\unskipfunnylines{\ifnoteintitle\endgraf\kern-2\lineheight\fi}


\definenamespace
   [addr]
   [type=module,
    name=address,
    command=yes,
    setup=list,
    parent=addr,
  ]

\define[1]\useaddress
    {\setnotetext[address][#1]{\namedaddressparameter{#1}{name}}}



\setupaddress[style=italic]
\defineaddress[fst][name={Name of Institute or Affiliation, City, Country}]
\defineaddress[snd][name={Name of Secondary Institute or Affiliation, City,
Country}]
\defineaddress[thd][name={Name of Third Institute or Affiliation, City,
Country}]

\processcommacommand[fst,snd,thd]\useaddress



\startsetups [document:start]
The Title\dorecurse{10}{\expanded{\thanks{Work supported by fund
\recurselevel.}}}
\endgraf

Me\dorecurse{10}{\expanded{\email{\tt my.name at mailbox.\recurselevel.com
}}\high{,}}\note[address][fst]\high{,}\note[address][snd]\high{,}\note[address][thd]
\endgraf

\placenotes[address]

\blank[medium]
  \startcolumns\hyphenpenalty1000

  \the\titlefootnotes\relax

  \setcounter[footnote][0]

  \unskipfunnylines

\stopsetups

\startsetups [document:stop]
  \stopcolumns
\stopsetups



\startdocument


test\footnote{test}

\input knuth

\input knuth

\input knuth

\input knuth

\stopdocument
