Coroutines are a documented function and the relationship between
coroutines is well-defined. As such, while the WAY two lua_States
implement their information sharing is an implementation detail, the
FACT that they share information is not. As such, it should be
documented that two distinct lua_States can share global data and that
coroutines are an example of how this might happen.
