To help make the 'x' more intuitive, it would be helpful if the mode
was referred to as "exclusive create" in the docs (at least once,
anyway), and the What's New entry stated explicitly that 'x' is used
based on the C11 precedent. Otherwise, I'm sure I'll be far from the
only one thinking "why not 'c'?". People shouldn't have to go read the
tracker item to find out the reason 'x' is used instead of 'c'.
