Sure, but the whole chapter design shows that READ_ONCE/WRITE_ONCE is
not the best design. They go deep and complex just to avoid using it too

That said, the chapter is dealing with increments specifically and
frequent writes.

In Elisp, we will deal with frequent writes into symbol objects, but
probably not into conses and other non-vectorlike objects.
