Yes, I almost used a convoluted expression instead of "opaque memory",
but it would have probably made my question far less clear.

I think it would be very beneficial to the discussion if we could settle
on a term for resources granted with exclusive rights. IIUC, the real
mechanism is not about opacity, but about the ability to give a
capability to a resource while losing all authority to this resource,
transitively, except for the authority to reclaim full authority on the
resource, after some checks have been made (like erasure of data stored
in the resource if the process asking for the resource didn't want for
data to be read at any condition).
