Pre-commit hook that examines the pending transactions and rejects accordingly.

Pre-unlock hook that examines the unlock request and restricts as required.

Note that svn's locking feature is not a write protection, but intended for serializing edits to files where individual changes cannot be merged - such as binary assets, images.

For that and the above, I have found that project policies work much better than technical restrictions you are asking for. Certainly in reasonably motivated professional environments.
