OK, I think I start to get this: the main functionality is to ensure 
that a remote application can't touch the media. Right?

For the local use "noaccess" does not make a difference. The user can't 
in any way verify that all access to media is limited, the app does not 
get a shortcut to access microphone and camera. Basically the user has 
to trust the application used to apply "noaccess", and that would 
protect the media from being misused at any remote receiver.
