It's a good idea but IMO it should be done as a context configuration option.

In czmq I've added the ability to configure a context (e.g. to specify
the number of i/o threads) separately from context creation. This lets
us make context-global settings like HWM, LINGER, etc.

The technique czmq uses is to only actually create the context at
first use, i.e. when a socket is created or when a thread is spawned.
You could do this in 3.0 as well.
