So... I am very interested in this idea as well.. Any luck on locking things down with a password since 6 years ago?  :idea:

Locks only keep honest people honest. Password protected blocks and entities do not exist for a reason.

We log critical dwg states to user editing sessions. When standards violations occur they can be swiftly identified and traced back to a designer. First infractions are met with friendly education, including restating "working to spec is a requirement of the role". Drawings that violate standards require extra time and money to process to an acceptable state. We keep people that help us keep our product competitive. Choose your path.

This sounds like a very proactive pace to work...and a good approach.
