Well, I guess it’s mostly proof against optimizing compilers that do if-conversion on bounds check code when generating genASM. Since most bounds checks are going to pass, this is a valid optimization IFF the index doesn’t come from untrusted input. Of course, I suppose you can’t really stupid-proof an architecture against a compiler.
