from the filesystem perspective, the data is always
consistent no matter how much it gets corrupted.
Yes, many file system designers only care about metadata consistency.
Note how doublefs is suggested as a replacement for copy-on-write
filesystems, even though doublefs only duplicates the metadata; with
update-in-place for data, I don't really see an efficient way to
guarantee that the data is consistent.
