What you propose is interesting, however, I don't know how you will succeed in patenting "Root Pointer" (which I have trouble understanding what it actually is), and I wonder how you will do the other things without introducing runtime overhead.
Also, isn't there already things like UBSAN to mitigate some of these problems if needed?
