To clarify, we're going to get this(?):

     shared int x;
     void main()
         x = 42; /* error */

You should change the first sentence of the DIP then. It says: "Reads 
and writes to data typed as shared are made atomic where the target CPU 
supports atomic operations".

 From that sentence I would very much expect the code be accepted and 
generate an atomic write.
