If I set up mdadm and I get a /dev/md* device, is it possible to hide from plain sight the underlying source devices that make up the array?

I wouldn't want to accidentally write to /dev/sd* that is a part of a mdadm array.

Interesting idea, but I think impossible to accomplish, I'm afraid.

Sadly, no, it is not possible.
