Dan explained his choice of "transcendent" in the original thread:

Ephemeral tmem (precache) may be the most interesting, but there is persistent tmem (preswap) as well. Both are working today and both are included in the patches I posted.

Looking for a term encompassing both, I chose "transcendent".
