suggestion: don't wholesale disallow deleting groups when layers inside are locked

When you do Layer>Delete>Group while a group is selected that happens to contain one or more locked layers, Photoshop refuses the operation and just does nothing instead. 

I believe it would be more helpful and more logical to still allow the operation to continue, but grey out the "Group and Contents" button on the subsequent dialog (pictured in link below), since that is the only portion of the operation that has any right to be blocked. Because the user may well just want to delete the host group without deleting its contents.
