Sure, if you are defining multiple locks, you may want to call SYNC 
MEMORY some time later, when you are done with all the work that does 
not depend on segment boundaries.
I don't see a point in mixing things up here by including the effects of 
image control statements with atomic operations. I also don't see any 
reason to treat co-indexed objects differently.
