However the plain TeX format from the standalone does not produce anything with 
the following minimal example:

%%% begin test-plaintex.tex
This is intended to test Plain \TeX\ from the ConTeXt stand-alone.

An elementary identity: $(a + b)^2 = a^2 + 2ab + b^2$. 
And a well-known identity due to Leonhard Euler  in which the five most 
important numbers appear:
{\rm e}^{{\rm i}\pi} + 1 = 0, \qquad \hbox{where }\; {\rm i} := \sqrt{-1}.

%%% end test-plaintex.tex

Saying in the Terminal:
        mtxrun --script plain basic-plaintex.tex

results in 
        mtx-plain | running command 'luatex --fmt=luatex-plain 
"basic-plaintex.tex »’ 
        This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.79.1 (TeX Live 2014/dev) (rev 4972) 
        \write18 enabled.

What is going on? (The above file typsets without problem with Plain TeX from 
TeX Live 2014).
Best regards: OK
