On IRC there was an agreement that not testing cancellation unless an actual
syscall is performed is sensible, after I mentioned that cancellation is
similarly missing in glibc sem_wait as well.

The current wording of the standard is not ambiguous to me though, and forbids
such elision.

Rich, would you raise this for an explicit consideration with the Austin group?
