Technically from the theories point of view what you say is true, but I do not think you can create a db manager based on this concept that works well in a high concurrent update environment. There is going to be an alful lot of rework. The rework will take system resouces. The db manager software would probably be better off to have the first process wait on the in process work to complete and to apply the resouces to another non-waiting process in the meantime.

The proof will be if someone actually develops a working product.
