I'm not sure. I think if you are using non-atomic in one place, it
means that all automatically drop the atomicity guarantee. So, it's
all or none for atomicity, for non-atomicity it's rather none or at
least one. That said, code should be carefully checked before doing
such.

Again, similar as for bitmap API usage, if it makes code cleaner and
increases readability, I will go for it.
Also don't forget the army of janitors that won't understand the case
and simply convert everything that can be converted.
