The quantum mechanical features of Hamiltonian cellular automata (CA) are described, i.e., of CA with integer valued variables and couplings that follow linear updating rules. We then discuss whether, in this class of CA, there is room for systems that evolve by permutations of a set of ontological states, thus providing examples for G.`t Hooft`s recent CA Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. Multi-partite systems consisting of interacting two-state components are most promising in this respect and may lead to physically interesting models.
