The point is that nothing in the semantics depend upon the definition of
correctly synchronized.

Rather, you can prove that the model provides certain properties for
of correctly synchronized programs (appropriately defined).

So if the JLS doesn't include the words "non-volatile" when it describes
correctly synchronized programs, it doesn't effect the semantics at all.
