Would a RW lock chain going down help transactional memory to a point, by allowing readers to pass through other readers, but writers have to wait until the readers down the tree have finished. This would allow as much concurrency through locks as possible if I am thinking about it correctly.

EDIT: to expand on this wouldn't having RW locks be better than Transactional?
