Probably yes, because registers basically treat every line as a
paragraph. I am not the most knowledgeable person about registers,
so I am re-forwarding this to the mailing list. For the benefit of
the list, a short summary of the question is this:

\setupinterlinespace[stretch=1.5]
\definewhitespacemethod [bigger] {\ctxparskip10pt plus3pt minus3pt}
\setupwhitespace[bigger]

creates lots of flexibility in the interline and interparagraph
space, so you can do something like this:

\definestartstop[kleiner]
[before={\startcolumns[n=2]
\setupinterlinespace[stretch=1.5]
\setupwhitespace [bigger]},
after={\stopcolumns }]

and that works like a charm in equalizing out the bottom lines
of the columns, for the running text. But with such a definition
somewhere, this still does not work:

\starttext
\startkleiner
\placeregister[index]
\stopkleiner
\stoptext

Does anybody know and approach to do that?

Best, Taco
