That would likely create problems when executing an instruction
sequence such as:


The HALT signal would not be asserted until after E goes high in the
last cycle of the STB instruction.  I'm pretty sure that means the CPU
would not actually halt until after execution of the LDA instruction
(doesn't meet the required setup time).
