I may be wrong, but couldn't setup, or whoever creates the original
HKLM/../cygwin key, set up the security attributes such that any

You mean creating permanent system mounts while running as administrator. We
tried that, and hit some upper mount limit in cygwin1.dll. Try it yourself:
~>for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25
26; do mount h: /home/user$i; done
