I would not call correctness an arbitrary limitation.

AFAIU page cache is shared, one application thinking that files it
opens can't be modified is no guarantee that the pages themselves 
will remain unchanged.

Isn't support for read-only page cache entries also a problem for 
RDMA when it comes to fs checksums? Sounds like a problem area that
needs real solutions.
