Hi Doss,

I don't think you can keep the user from modifying the toolbars.
Right-clicking on a toolbar will always open the customization dialog.
Also, there are other ways to the customization dialog which you can't

It may be my template -- or even be my document --, but in the end, it's
the user's program  ;-)

With a customized template, I can try to help the user/author to work
efficiently and produce nicely styled documents, but I can't force him to.

And it's a dilemma (or paradoxon?): The more I customize, the more *I*
become responsible for the problems the user has, and the more support I
have to give him.
If he's so unhappy that he wants to remove my customizations, we'll have to
sort out the problems.
