Why does APR use file-backed shared memory for unix and win32?

Isn't it preferable to have key-based shared memory? Windows supports it
(both desktop and CE, I checked). I believe Unix supports it (I checked, but
I'm not sure) through System V IPC. Shouldn't the implementation default to
key-based unless the platform doesn't support it?
