Well, a semaphore is not a "lock".  One does not have to use it.

Given that the intended usage is a unique semaphore per resource, one wishes to acquire a unique access permission to the resource.

resourceGuardAccessPermission seems a bit long to me.

Perhaps a unique spelling:
  uniqAccess acquire

For clarity, what are your suggestions?
