comment Arabic with colored vowels and colored suffix … possible?
I don't know if this helps you, but at pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/mk.pdf, you'll find a document about ConTeXt mkiv, i.e., with the luatex engine. Chapter XIII of this document contains several examples of colored arabic text. Since I don't know anything about arabic myself, this may or not be of interest to you.

comment How to use background on a single row or column in table?
The \starttable command is considered deprecated except for the most basic tables (see the overview at wiki.contextgarden.net/Tables_Overview). For what you want, it's better to use "natural tables" (with html-like syntax) or the new xtables environment. Both have their own manuals.

comment How to draw this picture in Context?
A similar question was asked on the mailing list some years ago; Wolfgang Schuster provided two possible solutions which may be interesting for you: article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.context/58936

comment How to get the current directory name in ConTeXt?
The question is tagged "context-mkiv," so yes, this is luatex.

Have you seen the information at wiki.contextgarden.net/Arabic_and_Hebrew ? It should get you going.

comment Providing Arguments to a Start-Stop
Why don't you use the regular \startsection ... \stopsection and \startsubsection? That will give you the benefit of being able to add the title. And you can define every section to equal one slide.

comment Managing hundreds of separate components in a large document
@Yiannis: I have no fundamental disagreement with what you write (well, I find the "3 minutes" part a bit hard to believe :-). The main reason why I would advocate something such as xml is versatility: you never know what you want to do with these examples next year - maybe you want to serve them over the net, or convert them to a different format? With xml, you have an entire toolchain that will help you do many many things with your content, while tex is difficult to parse with anything but, well, TeX.
