Please let's try to find a better notation.  Both "open" and "loaded"
are very confusing.  "Fore-/background" buffers, "ex-/implicit" buffers
are not good either.

I'm also worried about that.

Temporary? Might be not too good for the ones we'll want to keep around indefinitely (although I've yet to see a solid use case for that).

Hidden? I think this term is already in use for the buffers whose names start with a space. At least there's an index entry for "hidden buffers" in the manual, pointing to (elisp)Buffer names.

But there don't seem to be a variable or a function in the core that has both "hidden" and "buffer" in its name, so it could be a good option.
