The problem with the rules is that they are lost even on experienced
users of the Lua's C API (compare [2] and [3]). Some of them can be
adamant that the rules (with all their implications) are wrong even
after the rules were cited to them, with a detailed explanation why

Ultimately, as Roberto confirms, the buffers rely on no internal magic
and something similar can be implemented externally.
