The service control manager waits until the service stops or the specified preshutdown time-out value expires (this value can be set with the ChangeServiceConfig2 function). This control code should be used only in special circumstances, because a service that handles this notification
* blocks system shutdown *
until the service stops or the preshutdown time-out interval expires.

Depends. When you are ready to reboot you usually don't have anything important running by then.
Also, emails "abandoned" while sending will be re-sent, in most decent mailers.
Finally, when you do need the pre-shutdown option, you can specify it with cygrunsrv directly (-O, --preshutdown)
-- no need to deal with any manual registry changes.
