Yes true, it is all about stronger determinism guarantees.

Also, I agree in case of garbage collected (GC) Functional Programming languages, GC can offer stronger determinism due to immutability imposed by these languages which make them realtime capable. Even in case of Java, there are some GC algorithms can offer determinism guarantees.

So in the end, any language runtime, if it can provide stronger determinism guarantees can be used for mission critical systems.
