Six, no Eight, no Eleven Memories for Computer Architecture

The first six memory mappings are architectural, they are distinct on a logical basis, but can be folded into one or more physical renderings in various ways for cost and performance reasons.

The two "implementation" memory regions map the processor (e.g. the instruction set) into ROM. Thus instruction set complexity and implementation structure can be mapped into memory and thereby quantified.

Finally, I/O space and register space are easily numbered and made part of the overall "architectural memory space." And lastly, FIFOs are ubiquitous in multi-processor systems.
