(on von neumann architectures) somewhat, the goal is to minimize that

In fact, I would like to determine if an EFFICIENT way to make images and
such immutable exists, or if it is impossible.

I looked at graphics-drawingcombinators. It is nice, but it doesn't fully
answer to my problem since it just loads images and draws them. It provides
no ways to alter them, no problem of mutability, then.

Yes, you are right, this is wise.
