What you're describing is not POSIX anymore.
Nothing to do with POSIX. POSIX is a userland API, it doesnt dictate how the kernel should work.

So whatever you're describing, userspace cannot any longer use standard
POSIX calls: in fact, it can't any longer use ANSI C calls! I suspect that
such a system would be almost unusable with C, simply because you couldn't
use C string literals for anything.
If you want VMS, you know where to find it.
