> One example of this is any distributed database with a "last write wins" policy for resolving conflicting writes.

Since we already know that "last" by itself is a meaningless term for the same reason that "now" is not a simple value across the whole system, this is really a "many writes, chosen unpredictably, will be lost" policy — but that wouldn't sell as many databases, would it?

Even if the state of the art is still rapidly improving, anyone should be able to do better than this.
