Okay, that would be really great. Maybe a semi-automatic breaking across pages 
could be doable. The AMS package for LaTeX implements something like that. If 
you write \allowbreak (I am not absolutely sure if this is the true command, 
but it is something like that) at a line of an equation with multiple lines the 
typesetting algorithm knows that the formula can be broken across pages at that 
If something like that could be done in ConTeXt it would be really great. At 
present it is somewhat complicated to handle equations with many lines since 
you have to typeset the text and check if everything fits. If you could mark 
certain lines of an equation to be allowed to be broken at the end of a page, 
working with multiple line equations would be much easier and faster.
