Hi, sorry for the late answer my mail client didn't send it the first 

There's no such protection for the moment. I actually thought the 
medialib instance
was only queryable by an interface module like the main playlist but 
its currently not
the case.
But in the case of the main playlist for example, this is only a matter 
of guiding the
modules implementers and tell them that they shouldn't access the main 
if they are not working on an interface module.
Truly denying modules access to certains parts of the core would 
require isolating
modules in separate processes and that's not where we are now.

Sure, I added `Implements #261` at the end of the commit message as It 
the same behavior and will close the issue once merged!
