I think that's a very interesting idea, thanks.

I have been thinking about it and the only issue I see is that, since it
introduces a new buffer state, we would have to decide what
buffer-live-p returns for a buffer that is killed-but-not-yet-dead.

I suppose we may also want a new predicate to detect this state.
