Locked and Unlocked items in the panel.

I see that in the latest Gnome, applets/buttons in the panel(s) can be
locked which stops them from being moved or removed. Although this
probably does stop some problems associated with clumsy-fingered users,
it doubtless causes some too as users don't know why "Remove" is
greyed-out, and don't know what Unlock means in this context.

My Proposal: When an item is locked and user tries to move/remove just
pop up a dialog explaining about locking, and how to unlock.

We don't want to see these little usibility-stoppers creeping in, as I
was just reminded by reading the horrors of the usability study from
Gnome 1.x days.
