NVMe namespaces can have a bunch of 'write protection' modes advertised
by the controller, which Linux respects. The controller in this case would
be part of the SD-Card. IMHO it is a quality of implementation issue
of the SD-Card/Controller to have the the write protection mode of the
namespace(s) match that of the SD interface, and the SD card spec should
talk about that if it doesn't already.
