I must admit that I find myself copy/pasting this name because of its
length, especially when used in combination with the proposed
templated condition:

std::condition<std::exclusive_lock<std::mutex>> cv;

I like Peter's approach in N2178 of giving typedefs to the common
combinations of these types.

Works for me.

Or maybe (playing around with upgradable here - N2094):

namespace std {

typedef exclusive_lock<mutex> lock_this;
typedef exclusive_lock<upgradable_mutex> write_lock;
typedef sharable_lock<upgradable_mutex> read_lock;
typedef upgradable_lock<upgradable_mutex> read_upgradable_lock;
typedef basic_condition<lock_this> condition;
typedef basic_condition<read_lock> read_waiter_condition;
