You're talking about adding support for cygwin file names at the very
lowest level?  Well, yes, that'd probably be just as reliable as
within cygwin.
We'd want it to have zero impact to the users who don't use cygwin
(and may not even have it installed), of course.

Also, once cygwin file names are supported, I think people will expect
more integration of (native) Emacs and cygwin, e.g. in subprocesses.
