If you take that statement to apply to locks and revision contents as a
combined unit, then we irretrievably flubbed the locks table, by not
binding it somehow to revision files.

So I suggest you relax that constraint as a desirable, because we're
never going to satisfy it in FSFS without doing something bad like
grabbing the write lock before a hotcopy.
