That is indeed the case. Are read and write mutually exclusive, or do I
need to look out for watches that need to be added to both read and write
mappings (I'm planning on keeping a mapping from fd -> watch).

Ok, that makes sense.

I must have missed that :) I'm still trying to get the overall view of how
the system works, so I'm probably still missing plenty of important things.
