There's no real way to lock the timeline, it's be handy at times and definitely worth sending feedback about.

Having said that, I regularly send projects to other people for finishing and have never had an issue - even when sending FCPX projects to other FCPX users - you just have to trust that the people you are giving the project to are professionals who won't change it. I've been using FCPX for a long time and I'd find it hard to accidentally change something and not realise I'd done it.

And while FCPX may not be able to lock the timeline, most of the people I hand off projects to don't tend to use it in their work. Colour grading tends to be in Resolve via XML - and Resolve can lock the timeline before any work starts. Audio goes to Pro Tools or Logic and again, users of those apps can lock the timeline so it's never been a big deal if FCPX can't.
