I think you're both missing one crucial point: it is possible that
cygwin is installed and Emacs doesn't know of this and has no way to
know (because /usr/bin aka c:\cygwin\bin isn't in Emacs's path).

Of course, any future implementation could condition itself to support
cygwin paths iff cygwin's mount is accessible via (getenv "PATH").
