[Grok-dev] Making an interface the default module context

Let's say I have a module like:
Here, Schema is imported from elsewhere, and is just a marker interface,
Schema exists purely to make IFoo above grokkable with some optional
In the example above, I'd hoped that the context for FooView would
default to IFoo if there was no other obvious context (e.g. a model).
IFoo could be a marker interface, for example, which espouses a new view.
However, FooView does not know its context, so I have to use
grok.context(). I tried to let Schema provide IContext, and also to let
IFoo provide IContext explicitly via alsoProvides(). Neither seems to stick.
Is it possible to infer that the context for FooView should be IFoo in
