[mpiwg-rma] Single RMA synchronization for several window handles

Why not simply use MPI_Win_create_dynamic, attach the separate memory regions, and use that MPI_Win? Adding an option for a collective memory allocator would make this almost equivalent, and wouldn’t add additional overhead beyond what is already requried.
