Could you be a bit clearer about the "issues down the road" we're concerned about with overuse of context, or with use of context for non-request-scoped dependencies?

The end of your article advocates a little bit for just accepting code reuse, and the getter/setter/subfunction thing comes perilously close to GoF Java style for my taste. Further: I have seen, routinely, on pretty much every project I've worked on, serious production faults from errors and omissions in duplicated code. I'm not sure I've seen equivalently serious production faults (really: any faults) in overuse of things like "context".
