It's not 100 clear yet, but the initial plan at least for me is that
coffins are a design-level construct. That means that \NewCoffin is the
way to produce coffins - \coffin_new:N is there mainly to be wrapped up
in a design-level function.

Perhaps you might illustrate what you're doing at a 'concept' level?
