Yes, AFAIK the mechanism does not support this now (and I do not know, if it
sometimes will do -- it seems to me it is a relatively old part of ConTeXt
and Hans himself recommends you the layers :-).

Anyway, you would have to count positions and coordinates manually.

But there is always a way using generic TeX here:

  \hbox to 0pt{%
    \vbox to 0pt{
      -- a material to typeset or display --

Of course, this solution does not take into account all of ConTeXt dependent
(and very convenient and pretty) features like grid fitting etc.

It is a thing of your needs.

Have a nice day,
