I think (hope?) that the write would be counted as an "access". If not, this would break the "what if this was an IO port" analogue. If for some reason it wasn't, you could use a static variable to hold the result. I fear the real problem with "volatile" is that just about everything about it is implementation dependent rather than clearly defined by standard.
