Didn't these commands also work on custom linestyles?
It may be my memory plaing a trick on me, but I thought there was a way to freeze a linestyle and later restore it to normal.
I thought that freeze and thaw were just for dimensions so I was happily freezing hundreds of drawings but then I realised that it also freezes tags.
I've had to run a script to thaw the drawings, lock the tags and then freeze again so the dimensions are frozen but not the tags!
Anyway hopefully someone will see this and avoid my mistake.
why bother? if somebody wants to screw with your drawings they can undo whatever you've done... in a corporate world they are not considered your drawings but ours and edits need to be done by whoever is available... sad but true... BTW I dont think you can edit a dimension by mistake... its always on purpose.....

It's a client (caltrans) requirement. I don't think they care if the dims are frozen or dropped but I like the fact that frozen dims can be thawed again for editing.
For more explanation, the refs are merged into the drawing sheet which is ansi-D size. But the checkers like to scale the sheet to actual (model) size for checking, and they don't like it if active dims change as they scale the drawing.
