Yes, something like this is likely going to be possible in the future.
We had discussion around this. But mapping this to O_RDONLY and O_WRONLY
is not the right model. It makes more sense to have specialized flags
that restrict actions.

That's supposed to be possible. You can do the same right now already
with pids. Tools like LMK need this probably very much.
Permission checking for signals is done at send time right now.
And if you can't signal via a pid you can't signal via a pidfd as
they're both subject to the same permissions checks.
