Yes, fair enough.  Several things can be relevant to
determining what's in a "context" menu - including
modes, buffer text under the pointer, and properties
(text, overlay) under the pointer.

Anything having to do with current Emacs "state",
of any kind, can be considered behavioral "context".
Of course, context that is closely related to the
mouse-pointer state is particularly relevant.

It's not just modes.  It's not just text under the
mouse pointer.  It's not "instead of".  Right.
It's anything you (a user or code) want the menu
to be.
