Hi Hraban,

since your layout had left margin width set to zero, I recommended
[location=right].

Even if there were no collision, I guess that using the same margin for

I guess Hans won’t be able to take a look until ConTeXt and LuaTeX are
released for TeX Live 2017.

I don’t know, but both mechanisms aren’t able to split content between
pages:

\setupmarginblocks[width=.8\rightmarginwidth]
\starttext
\dorecurse{5}{\input zapf
\startmarginblock\input knuth\stopmarginblock}
\stoptext
