Yes, no, all of the above.  It really depends on what you mean by "in 
the same context/canvas."  When you draw with cairo-gl you give up 
control of the OpenGL state until you need it again.  You'll need to 
flush surfaces/devices at appropriate times to regain control of the 
OpenGL state and the cairo-gl rendered content.
