I tried this once.  However, that would mean the MinGW native compiler
would have to handle this as well since native MinGW doesn't have
usr/include/w32api and I don't want to force that on the MinGW

This won't work either unless you also do the previous suggestion.

It's beginning to sound as if you need to -isystem /usr/include/w32api
regardless of -mwin32.  The native MinGW community doesn't want the
/usr/include/w32api forced on them.
