Hi Jeremy,

This message contains a response to comments on


inconsistency needs discussion

Section 4.1.2 describes the use of DPF in distributed systems.
Within these, latencies are such that inconsistency is likely.
The DPF specification should take a position such as inconsistent
values may be returned to the application, and the application has
to deal with it, or that given some appropriate additional methods
the application can get a consistent snapshot of the state.


This is not a unique problem to DPF and there is no guarentee of  
Also, there will always be some level inconsistency and has to be  
delt within the application space.
