the only tricky part of this would be capturing C-c C-c when on results,
as this key binding already has a well defined meaning in most results
types (for example in tables).  However if we are willing to introduce a
new keybinding the actual function would be relatively simple given the
helper functions mentioned below.

there are currently functions which return the location of a results
block when called from a source block, and vice versa.

(org-babel-where-is-src-block-result &optional INSERT)

(org-babel-find-named-block name)

The only issue in exposing these to the user is the possibility of
polluting the already very dense space of Org-mode keybindings.

Ah, I think I understand.  That would be a much simpler path towards
achieving much of the "hiding" functionality originally proposed.  I
will add this discussion in a PROPOSED state to the Org-babel task list.
