The colour display could be easily covered by Graphic Overrides, if we could set the criteria to check for locked status.

The ability to have the selection process ignore locked layers would be a big help in some situations. My favourite frustration is the shell tool which is partially displayed by the floor height cut plane, but trying to select elements displayed below results in picking up the shell. I am sure there are many other examples. The downside is you wouldn't be able to select an element and use quick layers to unlock or hide it.

Agreed.
Weather with a Layer System or a Filter System, this whish would definitely need to come also with an "Unselectable Toggle" command on the On-Screen View Options to give more flexibility. IMO.
