I don't dispute that, but there seems to be an assumption there that if it takes out a lock on this metadata then that lock will necessarily have to be "the [present] WC write lock" which will therefore block operations such as 'update'. Is it inconceivable that some different level, granularity or kind of locking strategy could be used?
