As expected, not working. At least, not in the way I (and OP) want it.
There must be either less strict check against -t cygdrive "mount point",
or a completely separate means to define cygdrive prefix, since it's not
actually a mount point. (The mount points will be <prefix><drive letter>)

[C:\Programs\CygWin\etc]$cat /etc/fstab && mount
# For a description of the file format, see the Users Guide

# This is default anyway:
# none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0
none    /       cygdrive binary,posix=0,user,noacl 0 0

C:/Programs/CygWin/bin on /usr/bin type ntfs (binary,auto)

C: on /cygdrive/c type ntfs (binary,noacl,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)
