That statement is not entirely true. If real life requires
concurrency then solving concurrency is of high importance
to conistency. Only if concurrency can be forced out of
reality then there is no need to support it.

Well, no. I am solving my real-world problem. My daily work
includes concurrency. So that needs to be solved. I am
encountering patient locks caused by concurrency constraints
*daily* in the software that I use. Mind you, they are
needed to ensure consistency but they do unnecessarily stop
my workflow.
