# [NTG-context] setupcaptions

I want to make my figure captions both slanted and small, or bold and small,etc.
The wiki has for setupcaptions:

headstyle normal, bold, .. , small, ..
style     normal, bold, .. , small, ..

I therefore expected to work the following setup:

\starttext
\placefigure{A dummy figure}{\externalfigure[dummy]}
Caption test.
\stoptext

But no, two seems too much. style={bold} does work and style={small} but style = {bold,small} does not. From the general principles of ConTeXt's parameter handling I would have expected this to work.
Of course I could have used style={\bf\switchtobodyfont[small]}, but I would prefer to refrain from low level font commands when possible.

I am right the setupcaptions should work with combined fontsettings, or is it my mistake?
