Ability to lock some objects according to mapcss selector

Following a discussion with Vincent this morning during the SoTMFr conference, it may be useful to get locking functions in the Core JOSM engine.
Let's imagine a mapcss selector (in a config file) which can lock matching objects.
Users won't be able to edit tags, move nodes or change anything else on those objects. But they will still be able to use them as ways or relations members.

This way of doing makes the objets still visible while locked. A simple filter just hide objects. In case of complex filters or highly cluttered map, users can quickly forgot existing hidden objects and duplicate them.

I'm available to discuss this a little bit more or help if needed

All the best

This would be useful for reference geodesic points which are at fixed location and must not be moved in any way. We currently have no other option than adding a note to the object asking people to not touch them.
