Well, now that this Mac installer project of mine has been made semi- 
official let's put it this way:

I've already assembled a working ConTeXt package based on the minimals  
that installs via the Apple installer. In other words, it will provide  
the same seamless installation experience to the user as known from  
the MacTeX package and, in fact, as known from any decent Mac software.

However, a few minor issues still need to be sorted out before an  
initial version can be released to the public. For this reason (and in  
order to avoid clumsy workarounds) I'm currently waiting for an update  
of the relevant Apple developer tools which will most probably appear  
next week. That's actually pretty soon.
