It doesn't matter *how* you get to the situation where you are releasing a lock that hasn't been acquired, the point is to document what actually happens when you do the release.  And just yesterday I needed to know this, since I have a lock that may or may not be currently held when I release it, and now I know I can just catch RuntimeError in that case.
