My suggestion follows that convention: the assertion being made is that
the code would be verifiable, if we were to verify it.

Using the name 'verified' would be analogous to using
'CheckedAsBeingImmutable' as a marker interface.

Alternatively, a name with the connotation "only Joe-E in this package"
would be more explicit.
