The problem is that your response only says what is wrong with the 
independent sequence model, it does not say anything about why your 
proposed approach (processor dependent) is good. If we really want to do 
something good, we should do it, rather than rely on some compiler 
intern to get it right. At least the independent sequence model is clear 
and simple.
