I'm using "master" in memoryview because of the audio connotation ("the 
source from which all copies will be produced"):

   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_mastering

The ManagedBufferObject is literally the source from which all views 
are produced.

Conductors are sometimes called "Maestro", there are chess grandmasters, 
Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament, Art Tatum is called a master 
pianist, millions of people hold a master's degree.

The term "master" has so many positive connotations that I think it is 
misguided to effectively eliminate it from the current English language.
