Windows developers are not more stupid (or less smart) than unix
users. We do not have
libcurl-feature1--feature2--feature3-mode1.lib/so in other platforms
and I fail to see why we should have it on windows.

By the way, it is not the memory model but how the CRT is linked,
statically or dynamically.
