Be careful, PlainTeX is a macropaackage, just as ConTeXt is. One must  
distinguish PlainTeX commands from the TeX (and pdftex/luaTeX) primitives.  
Although some PlainTeX commands work similarly to the ConTeXt  
counterparts, you can rarely assume this. There are lots and lots more  
examples. Better to just treat them as very distinct macropackages, with a  
few commonly USED command names in common, but used to MENTION different  
things.

Best wishes
Idris
