Lightroom: Lock a book collection

Suggestion: I'd like to be able to "lock" (or "freeze" or "finalize") a book collection so that I can't inadvertently change its layout after I've finalized my book.

The use-case is that I've created a large book that I've sent to Blurb. Now I want to make a smaller derivative book, or change the book size (from, say, large landscape to regular landscape) along with the necessary layout tweaks, but I don't want to lose my original layout. So I've created a copy of my book collection to work from. But I've accidentally made changes to the wrong collection, and now I have to go through my catalog backups to re-create it. If I could have locked the original collection, that wouldn't have happened.
