Perhaps what was meant was that you embrace a system that actively
prohibits it. Most current systems do not require *or* prohibit. So
they are null ops for the purposes of examples. IIRC, the AS/400 does
require this sort of confinement, and even uses hardware capabilities.
These systems are *extremely* common in the U.S.: almost every bank and
insurance company has a great number of them.
