+1, by 'replica of CL' I mean the journal contains the same data what CL stores in its store
minus the indices and 
journal just writes that data in a sequential order (CL could be a B-Tree).
However an assumption I made here was that each valid operation succeeds at least before storing
its data in CL
( we have to write the same data to journal before storing in CL) this way we no longer need
any marking operation cause
if the master db gets corrupted we use CL to restore and if the CL also gets corrupted then
we can restore the CL from
journal(start from the beginning hence no intermediate 'marks') and then restore the master
