Would it be possible for admin only to 'lock' certain parts of a paper doc, to avoid accidental deletion of key parts of the doc? For example, you might share a doc which has some elements as 'read-only' that can't be edited or deleted (unless you're admin/ owner of the doc)– but the rest of the document could be edited by others.

If not part of the doc, for starters can we make a document read-only?
