e2e tests should validate waffle flags before starting

Description

Today, and I spent several hours debugging end-to-end tests, only to find that the culprit was a set of waffle flags that had been enabled on stage.edx.org after the last successful run.

Is there any way we could have these tests check for and validate the current values of active waffle flags before they start? That would make this sort of issue a lot easier to debug in the future.
