So the implication, to me, is that all actions are ordered as per the
program, unless the semantics of the memory model allow them to be
reordered - as per the table in figure 3. Is that right? That means we would
need to specify all allowed reorderings - which is something I thought we
had already determined we couldn't/wouldn't do??
