Prevent some issues with transparency:



This sets the complete document (global) to 'overprint' (or 'knockout'). Only useful for grayscale only documents.

Don't set this parameter, if you want to use local overprinting (or knockout)!

The \setupcolors setting is far older than the PDF/X or PDF/A related output 'intent' parameter in \setupbackend. No direct relation other than that both parameters are prepress options.
