Sounds great to me, except that it should be near the top, like
on Solaris, so it doesn't easily get overlooked, but this is
probably just personal taste. So, I am happy if the thread safety
behaviour does get mentioned at all in our man pages! :-)
P.S.: And thinking about the name of the section, I even like it
more than Solaris' MT-Level, which might not be that clear and obvious.
