And so I did (inside a VM, for safety):

dawud@wxp_pro ~
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 wxp_pro 1.7.0(0.218/5/3) 2009-12-04 17:08 i686 Cygwin

I haven't tested in deep the results, but I can report that
/etc/fstab wasn't created:

dawud@wxp_pro ~
$ cat /etc/fstab
cat: /etc/fstab: No such file or directory

dawud@wxp_pro ~
$ mount
E:/CYGWIN/bin on /usr/bin type ntfs (binary,auto)
E:/CYGWIN/lib on /usr/lib type ntfs (binary,auto)
E:/CYGWIN on / type ntfs (binary,auto)
C: on /cygdrive/c type ntfs (binary,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)
E: on /cygdrive/e type ntfs (binary,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)
Z: on /cygdrive/z type vboxsharedfolderfs

Don't have user defined mount points, so copy-user-registry-fstab only
generates an empty /etc/fstab.d directory.

Any hints?
