I come from a research environment with admittedly low thresholds for
this sort of thing (we don't do classified or medical stuff so no hard
regulations), but...

If the same entity controls the source cloud, translation layer, and
destination cloud where's the harm?

I can (maybe) see an issue if you're piping all you images through a
third part not involved in the source or target clouds. That's similar
to running on a public cloud trust wise so if you can trust a public
provider even that should be surmountable, but I don't think that's
the model suggested here.
