I guess that it refers to the technique described in NR 5.1.4 "Changing context default settings", but since this isn't described at all in the LM, the sentence you refer to should probably be removed.

I agree.  However, one of my TODOs is to add \context to the Learning
Manual, although this will probably not happen before 2.13.   It will not
precede section 3.1.1, so, yes, it should be removed from that section
to avoid violating the design principle that nothing is used unless it has
been explained earlier.

I'll do it now.

Thanks, Robin
