Hi Jamie,

I’m also another newbie (I switched to ConTeXt years ago ;-)), although
I cannot code myself :-(.

One of the features I value most is direct typesetting of XML sources.

If you want to go the hard way (it would be the impossible way for me
:-)), tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/strc-itm.mkvi may be the
file you are looking for.

The wiki offers some explanation on the topic
(http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Enumerations). You might be interested in
improving it.

Just in case it helps,
