 It would be great if ConTeXt supported:

 \mainlanguage
    [serbian]
    [script=latin | cyrillic]

 as well as

 \mainlanguage
    [english]
    [variant=american | british]

 etc. This is what Polyglossia does and I find it nice.

+1. How hard would it be to implement that?

i have no clue what it means but we have already inheritance in place 
since ages


so effectively we have:

\installlanguage [usenglish]   [en-us]
\installlanguage [ukenglish]   [en-gb]
\installlanguage [english] [en-us]

and adding

\installlanguage [brittish][en-uk]

is no big deal

i see no advantage in adding yet another mechanism for that

with regards to script ... not sure how that relates as the language 
mechanism does two things


- labels and conventions (time, date, numbering, quoting, ...)
- hyphenation control

 I could also add support for Serbian latin, but I have no idea how to
 add new language that will allow both latin and cyrilic.

as well as
