or notes by the author.  I am thinking of using both margin notes, and 
specially styled paragraphs (narrower, font change, etc.).  Then 
depending on the target audience, reader or editor, the editorial 
comment could be included or not.


Is there a recommended design pattern that I could use for this type of 
work?


I am not sure I completely understand your question, but have a look at 
modes: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Modes

Perfect.  I think that modes will work nicely.

To further explain my use case:  I have a manuscript, which I would like 
to continue to evolve with editorial comments, suggestions, ideas for 
further development (some generated by the author, others by reviewers).  

At any given time the text of the document is lagging the editorial 
input.  Revisions of the project are under mercurial source code 
control.  The primary view of the document is to be a publication ready 
version, but in its draft form, the author's version should include the 
work-in-progress.  Eventually, the editorial comments may diminish or be 
left for another day, and the work-in-progress will get incorporated 
into the main text.  The publication view is useful if you have 
multiple people reviewing the book, and you don't want to proliferate 
the union of all editorial comments into the review copy.

I wanted to capture this author-editor workflow under ConTeXt.  I think 
modes will be just what I need.

Thanks.
