all ok with me.  I'd bias towards making it a more fatal error by default, but I know sometimes that can be annoying for debugging.

I think we'd actually have to do real work to enable any more cases and all the low-hanging fruit has been done already.  I suspect there's very little additional cases we could cover.  Uninterruptible is a very strong property: it is effectively an atomic section from the view of M-N threading and what happens on a single virtual processor.
