But it should be great if it would be possible in the futur.

Ok, thanks for this information.

That the two solutions I found, since 2 days. ;-)
But in this two cases, the panels can be remove or deleted by the

The solution we choose is to make the panel files unwritable.

Thanks a lot for your explain help.
