You can not be "/mostly/ consistent read"like you can not be half-pregnant
or half transactional. You either are or you are not.

If you do not have enough nodes for a QUORUM the read fails. Thus you never
get stale reads you only get failed reads.

The dynamic snitch makes reads "sticky" at READ.ONE. Until a node crosses
the badness_threshold,reads should be routed to the same node. (first
natural endpoint). This is not a guarantee as each node is keeping snitch
scores and routing requests based on its view of the scores.

So at READ.ONE you could argue that Cassandra is "mostly consistent" based
on your definition.
