as such ConTexT should support the use of the size table in its font handling,
but as Hans has mentioned design sizes a very special and few actually know
what that information means and put it to a useful purpose.
Question would be in far this font feature should be rudimentarily supported.
IMO, they should be fully supported. There are not so many fonts with
that property and even less in the free software world, so one can
assume that somebody possessing such font knows what that means and
probably expects its support.
I think, context should by default use the appropriate font for each
font-size corresponding to the design range defined in the font’s table,
while providing an interface to override that automatism.
