I listed (4) because we didn't decide in the previous meeting whether to 
go with (2) or (4).

Atomicity and ordering go hand-in-hand; if there's no atomicity, 
ordering doesn't make sense. Since we have basic datatype atomicity for 
accumulate/get_accumulate, ordering would make sense at that granularity 
as well.

If someone wants to propose full-message atomicity, then we can consider 
ordering at that granularity too. But till then, whole message ordering 
is an overkill.
