It is the relevant concept of locality for consideration of the Bell correlations. HV models are, in fact, essentially classical models with local interactions. Other formulations of the locality postulate also imply Humeanism -- the complete state of the world is determined by the intrinsic physical state of each spacetime point and the spatio-temporal relations between these points.
