It is read-only to all the sessions in which it is
used for mixdown into some format. It is evidently
not read-only to the session that created that data.

Not if you have a well defined workflow and know what
you are doing, and I generally do.

Because I know what I'm doing. If I edit the original
recording for some reason (e.g. replacing a few measures
by another take), then I expect the mixdown sessions to
pick up the change if they are re-run. If I wouldn't
want that I'd duplicate the data into each mixdown
session instead. The 'dangerous' thing happens only
because I want it. Having the option to do this doesn't
affect any other user who doesn't want to do the same.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
