Lightroom Classic: Lock star ratings outside of Library and Develop

Hi - printing this morning, I was typing in the margin I wanted to use - accidentally changed the star rating on the image.  Again.  

It would be great(!) to limit rating changes to library and maybe develop (I doubt many people change image ratings in Print), or if there was an option to choose what modules allow changes to ratings...

Maybe configurable to require a modifier key, such as shift/control/command/etc?

I think it would be great to lock ALL metadata/edit changes to a photo. A lock capability has been requested for several versions.

I'm always accidentally changing the rating of a photo in Library and Develop. I'd love the option to change the shortcuts in all modules.

I'm using 'helper' keywords to guard over my ratings. This because they can changed by accident so easily.
I put the keyword RM3STAR to all my 3 star rated photo's etc. It is a tip from Peter Krogh's DAM book for photograpers btw.
I have a smart collection watch my new images. After i have rated them (and not provided the helper keyword yet) this smart collection is populated so i know what to do.
