As I see it, there is no conceptual difference between $SystemRoot and a
drive, hence I suggested /cygdrive/WINDOWS.  If /cygdrive is inherently
magical, then that presents a problem.  If it isn't, then whatever
mechanisms are used to create /cygdrive/c (mknod, mounts, magic, etc) can
be used for this as well (IMO).
