Ok, some days later I'm still not where I'd like to be (and my deadline
is overdue).
Let’s resume:

A running text is to be interrupted by spans of 3 pages.
Postponing (\startpostponing) works well for that, but I need to switch
off page numbering on two of that 3 pages - as far as I tried,
\setuppagenumbering as well as \setuppagenumber doesn’t work within
postponed sections.

Further, these pages contain full-page pictures, i.e. I need them
bleeding off the paper.
Normally, \setlayer works well for that, but I couldn’t get layers
working within postponed sections.

Since I need these interruptions several times in a very similar way, I
\def’ed that postponing stuff as a macro, but get errors that point to
expanding problems (I never get those).

I’d appreciate some pointers in which direction I should
think/investigate further.
E.g.
- are there alternatives to postponing? perhaps multi-page floats (but
at defined pages)?
- is there a possibility for bleeding full-page pictures without layers?
- can it work at all to change page numbering within a postponed page span?


maybe

\starttext

page 1

\page

\startmakeup[page]
page a
\stopmakeup

\startmakeup[page]
page b
\stopmakeup

\startmakeup[page]
page d
\stopmakeup

page 2

\stoptext
