Yes, they can, and there's no way to stop them. Either they have
write access to the file (can commit changes to a file's text and
properties), or they don't have write access to the file (they cannot
commit any changes to text or properties.)

It sounds like you're trying to "control developers with an iron
fist". If they change a property, wouldn't you see an email saying
so, and wouldn't you scold the user?

(Are you also planning to prevent users from breaking and stealing
locks?)
