The atomic operations facility is closely tied to clause 1 and the memory model. It is not easily supplied as an after-market extension, and should be trivial to implement of a single-threaded serial machine. The consequence of not having this facility will be poor interoperability with future C++ libraries that memory model concerns seriously, and attempt to treat them in a portable way.
[ Resolved in Rapperswil by a motion to directly apply the words from the ballot comment in N3102. ]
Add <atomic> to table 15, headers required for a free-standing implementation.
