it looks like they are looking for what I was (more or less)
suggesting in:

and party mode only gets you partly there.  There should be an
alternative "jukebox" mode which basically makes everything read-only
(i.e. no modification of playlists, podcasts, radio).  This could be
in addition to party mode, e.g. several "lockdown" modes.  You could
have 3 modes:

1. "party mode" as is

2. "jukebox" mode: like 1) but everything is read-only, you can only
   add things to the play queue, no modifications of playlists, radio
   stations, podcasts, no ripping of CDs etc, but you can switch

3. "total lockdown": like 2) but locked to a single source
   (e.g. Library or playlist), the only thing you can do is play/pause
   select different tracks within that source

Even further was another suggestion on the same bug, is to allow the
different levels to be customized:

you could have pre-configured profiles (as above), but the user could
configure exactly what is or is not modifiable.
