I don't like this one. This might be annoying.

there should be some r/o indicator in the header line. unfortunately, both R and O are already taken. maybe N (no-write)?

a popup warning should appear as soon as the user tries to actually modify the file (i.e., when the the "file modified" flag would be raised).

Replying to ossi:

maybe N (no-write)?

Maybe W (writable)?

i wouldn't want to indicate the normally expected state. it is simply the wrong way round.
