One comment. I don't think the blocking policy is a feature of
the mutex; it's a feature of the lock attempt. The *supported*
blocking policies are a feature of the mutex. But if I have a
Win32 critical section, it's up to me whether I choose to
EnterCriticalSection or TryEnterCriticalSection. The critical
section doesn't care.

It seems to me we need a lock feature diagram. This would be
one feature of that. Handling for attempting locks on multiple
objects would be another - (is it supported, if so is it lock
all or lock any).
