Apologies for the delay getting back to you on this...
I agree with you that getting a uniform gss mechglue 
specification that that included a context passed in 
every call would be a vast improvement over the 
current mechglue situation.  Unfortunately it would
also be a serious undertaking that would impact every 
platform, not just windows.  I believe such an effort 
is beyond the scope of our current projects and I do 
not think it is strict requirement.  It's possible I could 
be proven wrong.  I'm not sure what you mean by 
"...Moonshot requires that mechglue layers themselves 
be mechanisms".  I'm not aware of any such requirement.  
Sam is incommunicado until Monday, but perhaps he 
can shed more light when he returns.  I'm loath to
get into any detail about Moonshot myself both 
because it's out of scope for this list and because 
I don't know the project well enough to trust myself 
to be completely accurate.
