I actually use these abstractions, but with the default value also set.
That's the whole point of having the defaults, right? So, my current
\setupexternalfigures[scale=750, factor=max, maxwidth=\textwidth,
[width=0.55\paperwidth, height=0.33\paperwidth, scale=, factor=]
Around five months ago, I did not need to reset scale and factor.
The code now uses the new inheritance mechamisn and in mkii external figures
had a whole bunch of (sometimes tricky) resets. Some were reset, some not.
I know. In the past I had to work around the fact that scale could not be
set globally (because it was reset at each invocation). The current
behavior (everything inherits from the global setting) is more predictable
and easier to handle.
One complication with externalfigures is that scaling can depend on
combinations (width, maxwidth etc).
... and the only way to figure out that dependence is to read the source
code. At some stage I'll try to document how scale and factor work.
