Well, obviously I interpreted the use of \V!-macros wrong.
I understood it being the ConTeXt way of making command strings
language independent, as in for example.
\c!corner=\v!rectangular
Using code like this in a setup-getparameters combination.

The article "Context System macros part1" <by the way is er a part @?

an old plaintex -> latex macro pack now -> context I thought it handy

Clearly I am not grasping the real meaning. Will you enlighten me? If
it doesn't takes to much of your time to explain.
