I think that's correct.

I agree with your conclusion.

The only additional point that comes to mind is the dependence
upon out-of-order execution, completion, and dequeuing of
requests (ORBs). I'm uncomfortable with this because the SBP-2
spec doesn't describe out-of-order completion of requests or
removal of completed requests from within an active request list.
