Yes. The semantics as presented in our current paper falls between
A and B. And our general approach to capture the JMM, if summarized
using a non-operational approach, is very similar to what you just

Our specification framework, on the other hand, can be configured to
capture a wide spectrum of memory properties, including A and B, although
these two extremes are probably not desired for the JMM :)
