Interestingly the legality of these casts is target dependent and  
based on the particular target's aliasing rules for those address  
spaces. On all the currently supported platforms address spaces are  
probably not even legal.

That would definitely be part of the experimental nature of this  
support. =)

Ok, good to know.
