As far as I understood I order to typeset text in xetex you have to use basically 
plain TeX-commands.

So, when you say you're working on XeTeX drivers for ConTeXt does that mean that I can 
write normal context code but typeset with XeTeX instead of pdfeTeX?

That would be great. Because my aim is to include polytonic greek quotes in my context 
document, and I setup an ideal context environment for my publications already and 
don't want to start with plain TeX again.

So if my understanding is right, when do you think XeTeX will be available for us 
ConTeXt users?
