By the way, I haven't been following this thread very closely, but one 
thought did come to mind: when xetex moves to using the .fmt extension 
in place of .xfmt (coming in the next update, to fit in better with 
TL2004), you'll need to think about using a different base name for the 
"xecontext" format in order to avoid a clash with the standard 
pdftex-based context.

Just a heads-up .... JK
