- Is the order of transactions deterministic, or is it decided by the slot leader when creating the block? Are DEX front-running attacks a possibility?
- Can the slot leader censor specific transactions or computations (delay them for that 20-second slot)? If there is congestion, how are the slot's resources rationed?
These are a couple examples I came up with, but I'm generally wondering what kinds of choices the slot leader is empowered to make. (in order to consider how those opportunities might be abused in subtle ways)
