I can add this to admin.  You mean for a Context, right?

I've been hoping for someone to implement DefaultContext.remove() or 
something like that so that the DefaultContext admin features are 
complete.  I raised the issue a while ago on the list.  I haven't had 
much time to work on the DefaultContext itself.  Once the method is 
added, I can add the DefaultContext config to the admin.

What other work is missing in admin webapp other than DefaultContext? 
It'll be more helpful if we have a list of things to work on admin to 
make it complete.  I haven't had much response/feedback from developers.

I personally think it's beta but maybe I'm not aware of all the missing 
features and other issues.  Please let me know.
