This is much more a ConTeXt issue than a XeTeX issue. I *think* it comes 
up with XeConTeXt because the CJK font has (relatively) wider roman 
characters than with roman fonts.

Anyway, here are two different approaches. You can either correct it per 
item group (making it broad or a multiple thereof), or across all 
itemizes (insert whatever width that makes you happy).


\dorecurse{13}{\item item }

% or:
\dorecurse{13}{\item item }


Hope that helps!
