In any conversions of formats, from one to another, IMO, the issue is the
richness of one format and if that is converted to another format.
For me, i had some Context files, that had, for example, footnotes, within
footnotes, within footnots. This is very doable in Context. Asciidoc,
currently, does not support this multiple levels of footnotes, so, as i

If i want to go from Asciidoc to Context, the bounds of asciidoc, imo, is a
subset of what is possible in Context.
I don't know what the slide format is, and haven't used that.
My suggestions would be, as you are going from asciidoc to Context, make sure
