I think it's mildly crazy.  As discussed, real hardware doesn't
manifest true OOTA values: the OOTA problem is a problem with our
models, not with our systems.  Changing (and slowing down) our systems
in order to accommodate the inadequacies of our models is rather to
put the cart before the horse, is it not?
