[syncstream.syncbuf.members] p5 says "May call member functions of wrapped while holding a lock uniquely associated with wrapped."

It's unclear what "uniquely associated" means. Is it required to be a one-to-one mapping, so that every streambuf* that is wrapped is associated with a different lock?

I believe the intention is only that for a given streambuf* every syncbuf that wraps it uses the same lock. The intention was that it's a valid implementation for the same lock to be used for more than one streambuf* (e.g. using a table of N locks which are indexed by a hash of the streambuf* value). The current wording can be interpreted to forbid that implementation.
