Did you raise an issue? If so please post it here as I will vote for it, and need to do this myself. I would like to lock it even for administrators, and only allow adding of components by first unlocking the component add feature and then adding it.
I would vote against this terrible 'enhancement' too. It's ridiculous that if you're an administrator, a typo insta-creates a component or version or whatever. Backing them out involves getting into the project administration, which is a UX asymmetry: it should be as easy to delete these phantoms as it is to create them.
