I don't know.  The intention is that the caller wants something on
this node or the caller will fail or fallback ourselves, right?  For
most use cases just considering the nearest memory node as "local" for
memless nodes should work and serve the intentions of the users close
enough.  Whether that'd be better or we'd be better off with something
else depends on the details for sure.
