Yeah, it does. I worked with Wave for a while, which is why I have
reservations about the technique - it leads to some surprising
outcomes and makes some things that ought to be easy (like arithmetic)

I think agreed ordering is a much more understandable and safe
mechanism. But leads to potentially massive latency.

Tradeoffs are hard.
