For example. the LaTeX ieee.sty is available at

it be to emulate these in ConTeXt?

The hard part is figuring out the values (font size, spaces after sections, etc) from the LaTeX code. It is difficult to look at http://mirror.hmc.edu/ctan/macros/latex/contrib/IEEEtran/IEEEtran.cls and figure out what is the title size for a 10pt document, or how much space should come between the author block and the start of the two column text, etc.

Reverse engineering these values is no fun. That is why I am saying that an *exact and complete* spec is needed.
