Not necessarily. It can be stored into the CL. The journal is just a 
safety net here, when we replay it, assuming we have started at a point 
we had a failure, then if an operation has failed (like we try to delete 
a non existing entry), it will fail again.

With the CL, we can obviously go a bit farther, and this this the goal, 
but in case the CL is totally screwed up, we can restart from the journal.
