The problem that might occur with this approach is byte ordering.
When we have u64 items, we know that they all are placed in CPU
ordering by the bottom layer. What's the contract now? Can it be
a problematic? Please double check this (always keep in mind BE32
as most interesting case for u64/unsigned long representation and
other possible byte ordering outcomes).
