It is an interesting idea, but is there a use case associated with this
idea? As far as I'm concerned, I've been advocating to being able to
give access to a proxy to a private name directly (without
correspondance map).

I'm currently writing a proxy that records all activity happening on an
object for the purpose of being able to "replay" the different states an
object has gone through.

Unfortunately, your proposal does not cover this use case.

The main thing that bothers me with your proposal is that you hand the
responsibility to use the private name to the proxy (without giving it a
direct access to the name which, I admit, is an interesting idea).
I think the private name owners should be the ones deciding who they
trust and how they collaborate/communicate with the private name.
