If I didn't get your explanation wrong, this example should work:

\setupnote[footnote][inbetween=\blank]
\setupnotation[footnote][display=no]
\starttext
\dorecurse{5}{foot\footnote{note}}
\stoptext

I'm afraid it doesn't. What is wrong here?

Are you sure that this is buggy? If each note should have 5mm before and
after it, I think the right space between notes should be 10mm (5mm
after the previous note plus 5mm before the next note). Maybe I'm being
too simplistic, but I think it's right.
