[NTG-context] Lato typescripts (MKIV/LMTX)

Hi,

With the latest upload (2022-09-16 14:41) I wanted to compare some older
projects that I've used with MKIV to the LMTX 2.10.00.

In one of which I am using the Lato 2.0 font (
https://packages.debian.org/sid/fonts-lato).
With MKIV I get the correct output but LMTX complains about not being able
to find the font.

There seems to be an issue with the typescript file type-imp-lato.mkiv.

MWE:
\setupbodyfont[lato,12pt]
\starttext
Hello World!
\stoptext

If I change the file: reference I get it working with both MKIV/LMTX:

    \starttypescript [\s!sans] [lato] [\s!name]
        \setups[\s!font:\s!fallback:\s!sans]
        % \definefontsynonym [\s!Sans]           [\s!file:lato-regular]
 [\s!features=\s!default]
        % \definefontsynonym [\s!SansBold]       [\s!file:lato-bold]
[\s!features=\s!default]
        \definefontsynonym [\s!Sans]           [\s!file:lato-reg]
 [\s!features=\s!default]
        \definefontsynonym [\s!SansBold]       [\s!file:lato-bol]
[\s!features=\s!default]
        \definefontsynonym [\s!SansItalic]     [\s!file:lato-italic]
[\s!features=\s!default]
        \definefontsynonym [\s!SansBoldItalic] [\s!file:lato-bolditalic]
[\s!features=\s!default]
    \stoptypescript

mkiv lua stats  > loaded fonts: 3 files: xitsmath-bold.otf,
xitsmath-regular.otf, lato-reg.ttf

Does MKIV handle fonts differently to LMTX? I can see some tma/tmc
references in MKIV:
system          > lua > compiling
'/home/reviczky/.texlive2021/texmf-var/luatex-cache/context/e570cb3e0e3ab0118ca08dd148bbec7d/fonts/otl/lato-regular.tma'
into
'/home/reviczky/.texlive2021/texmf-var/luatex-cache/context/e570cb3e0e3ab0118ca08dd148bbec7d/fonts/otl/lato-regular.tmc'
system          > lua > dumping
'/home/reviczky/.texlive2021/texmf-var/luatex-cache/context/e570cb3e0e3ab0118ca08dd148bbec7d/fonts/otl/lato-regular.tma'
into
'/home/reviczky/.texlive2021/texmf-var/luatex-cache/context/e570cb3e0e3ab0118ca08dd148bbec7d/fonts/otl/lato-regular.tmc'
stripped

But looking at the mtxrun font list I cannot see the "lato-regular", so not
sure how MKIV points to
/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype/typoland/lato/Lato-Regular.ttf.

I am cleaning the cache and do a generate and fonts reload each time.

Is changing the type-imp-lato.mkiv as above the right approach to get lato
working in both MKIV and LMTX?

Thanks,
Adam
