comment How to make a macro which displays different text the last time it appears within a paragraph in ConTeXt?
It is better to use last as a key rather than final because last is already used as a key by other commands (and therefore you get automatic multilingual interface if you use \c!last, etc.

How about the following interface? \num[statistical={+0.2,-0.3}, systematic=0.1] 1.24, with appropriate options to control the output.

comment A command to replace \middle| when it's missing?
You can use any delimiter with \middle: \middle\Vert, \middle\), etc. (Not that I can think of a reason why the latter will be needed. Note that the bracket package internally use \vrule for non eTeX engines.

I can confirm this behavior. Seems to be a regression bug. Please report this to the context mailing list.

comment Ways to grab and store larger amount of text
Indeed, in MkII data was written to temp files. The implementation was similar to data grabbing macro from fancyverb package: data was parsed line by line and the grabbed string was compared with \stopbuffer. (That was the reason that \stopbuffer had to be on a line of its own). In MkIV, the implementation is Lua based, but it is relatively simple (effectively same as plain TeX answer of egreg, but ConTeXt first changes the catcode table to vrbcatcodes and uses a configurable stopper; I really don't understand why nested buffers work).

comment Errors Mpgraph in ConTeXt
BTW, ConTeXt does not come with a typescript for droid font. type-win is for MkII typescripts. MkIV typescripts are in type-otf.mkiv. You can also use simplefont module for setting fonts.

comment Errors Mpgraph in ConTeXt
mpgraph uses a math font because the labels can have things like 3 \times 10^6. You have two options, either add a matching math font to your typescript, or change the metapost.format_n function from m-graph.mkiv.
