// Opaque handle for a bulk region.
// Regions are independent blobs of data and have the following semantics:
// - regions are first created. Regions can be bounded-size or
// unbounded-size. Bounding allows the implementation to take various
// optimization shortcuts. After creation, the regions are considered
// "open"
// - open regions may be written to. Concurrent writes into the
// region are sequentially consistent iff they are non-overlapping. There are
// no durability gurantees for open regions.
// - after writing to a region is finished, the region is persisted, putting it
// in a closed state. The region will no longer service writes, but can
// service reads
// - deletion of regions is accomplished in the following manner. Regions are
// deprecated, marking those regions for deletion at some point in the
// future. Deprecated regions may still service read requests. Regions can
// only be deprecated if they are in a closed state. Regions are removed from
// the namespace and possibly deleted during an explicit garbage collection
// call.

// w.r.t. index management and container movement between targets
// TODO: define serialization semantics, sharing of regions (if at all)
