Hi William,

I do not know whether I can make you happy ...

I played with the following setup, which gives a comparable result, 
though it needs some manual actions:

\starttext
\startcolumnset[n=2]
\startlocalfootnotes[n=0]
    text with footnotes\footnote{a tip}
    text
    text
\placelocalfootnotes
\column
    text
    text
    text
    text
    text
\stoplocalfootnotes
\stopcolumnset
\stoptext
