Sorry, Torsten :-).

The new discussion is better, but:

(a) I think the ordering discussion requires some edits to some places 
earlier in the chapter too (see proposal 2).

(b) Do we know any network (except ones that emulate one-sided 
communication over two-sided messaging) that provide strict ordering? As 
far as I know, most networks only provide ordering between PUTs (or 
atomic PUTs). Ordering between GETs is also not provided, unless the 
user does a flush after each GET operation. Is this only for convenience?
