Ok, some days later I'm still not where I'd like to be (and my deadline

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.
- 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?

Good hint. I setup:


and get empty right/left pages from within my macro.

Can I control if the content after a markup starts on a right or left page?

Further, if I try to use postponing in a macro, I get errors:

Runaway argument?

I guess I need to unexpand something?

My example:
