Just for the record: luametatex is *not* optimized for context, it just 
provides (rather generic) stuff not present in other engines that we can 
benefit from. That said: of course after decades of context we know what 
is missing in tex that we could benefit from, and we do. One distinction 
between luatex and luametatex is that we delegate some more to lua.

The reworked math engine is something that is probably very contextisch 
if only because other macro packages are locked into "chisseled in stone 
ams (and alike) math as the only thruthful and accepted by publishers 
way to do it" so there the "optimized" sort of applies, in the sense 
that we can fully benefit from it as well have extra features that make 
certain things possible.
