  That's right. I added a line in the doc to make it a bit clearer.

  It's not needed for s6-svwait, because you can simply wait for D
then for u or U. If you're using s6-svwait, you don't really care
about a possible race, so sequential waiting is sufficient.
  But I guess it doesn't cost much to add support for -wr/-wR, if
you want it.
