surely Zarf *does* have a meaning,
viz something like :
Zarf: a codeword used by US National Security Agency to reference specific
classified information; the term Zarf is UNCLASSIFIED, even though
Information protected by the Zarf codeword will continue to require

is this really very different from, say:

BNC: a codeword used by the international Corpus Linguistics community to
refer to a specific dataset; the term BNC is widely-used, even though
only a small cognoscenti have detailed knowledge of the contents and
structure of the dataset.
