I can't tell from your code how you intend for it to be used.
I also don't know what you mean by "templated constructors",
as your Newer trick is used only in shared_resource::reset().

The usual way to hide allocation is with a factory function,
which it seems in your case could return a shared_ptr, but I'm
still not clear on what problem you are trying to solve.
