The new set of file operation primitives will require additional administration (especially on the client side) compared to the corresponding "ordinary" file operation primitives. The overhead introduced by this administration should be negligible.

Furthermore, performance degradation should only occur when unavoidable, e.g., due to weakened connectivity. In other words, fully connected clients should not be punished; they should not experience any non-negligible degradation of performance.
