I think that if Quanming can get it to the point that

1. There's a clean abstraction for differing hardware  (Quanming, the discussions we've had about that should also go onto your Wiki);
2. (I haven't discussed this with Quanming yet) The interface described in posix_typed_mem_open() either is present or is trivially implementable

then the interface will be useful for simple uses such as creating a private per-task memory block, etc. and would be a good candidate to go into the source tree.
