What would be the benefit of coming up with a third API? Would there be any
differences between that API and pthreads, and if not, why not use pthreads

Besides, N2178 isn't simply based on pthreads (in that case you'd have a
point, why talk about pthreads if it's simply an implementation detail). It
defines a model for interoperability between C++ code (using <thread>) and C
code (using pthreads).
