Thanks Hans for your attention!

The problem of such an usual default is also with newcomers who would not know 
about this feature in ConTeXt: when one writes maths one would not guess that 
typing an inequality like $n < -1$ would end up in $n \leftarrow 1$. And 
writing such inequalities is very common… while \leftarrow is used seldom in a 
mathematical text.
So I think having the default collapsing=1 would be more logical, and more in 
line with the spirit of TeX.

I hope Aditya will be convinced…

Best regards: OK
