This scenario makes sense and it gives you more security.

Why use WAP on-top of SharePoint & ADFS?

Because it gives you a way of exposing your public SharePoint applications to the internet without anyone having any line-of-sight. This is important because it means nobody could overwhelm your SharePoint infrastructure without being authenticated first.
