It's been a while since I discussed this with Lina, but iirc I opted for
the model you suggest and we concluded that it wouldn't fit with the RPM

And given that, for reasons unknown to me, msgram isn't a single region,
but a set of adjacent memory regions, this does seem to represent
hardware better.
