It isn't, imho.

Waffle follows the GL winsys semantics, as such it should not do more
(create a context, make it current, etc) unless explicitly asked. It
translates the winsys/platform specifics, not the GL crazy. Although I
can see how one would want both to be hidden/handled in waffle.

That's my take on it, at least. If people familiar with waffle think
I've misunderstood things, please shout.
