I'm not even sure FUA is necessery, if the ordered tag is working

Repeat: Ordered tags have nothing to do with whether or not a write is
committed to stable storage. But that is precisely what you want for
a write to a journal. FUA is the mechanism that is specifically
intended to get the behavior you want for a journal.
