Would samples help you with this task?

Dear Hans,

I'd like to introduce a friend into composing critical editions using
ConTeXt. I have made some tests myself, and I'd like to know a couple
of issues about paragraphed linenotes before start explaining.

The first issue is about note split. When I started using ConTeXt, I
realized that footnotes might be placed in the next page (unless
split=verystrict is set). Fearing the same results in linenotes, I set
this, but this lead to wrong separation between body and notes (at
least on my examples). My question is: does the default split value
for paragraphed linenotes keep all notes in the same page?

There are another issues. I'd love to use ConTeXt for critical
editions. But I need to know both issues first.
