The belt is the Mill operand holding/interchange device. It is a fifo of a fixed length of 8, 16 or 32 depending on the specific chip. Operations pick any arguments from the belt and drop the results at the front, removing equally many values from the back in the process. One operatiuon can drop multiple results. While on the belt, values never change, removing any write/read hardware hazards.
