actually the alpha channel lock is a major source of confusion,
sometimes even for me. "Huh, painting doesn't work". Also it has a
different use pattern: Your descision if you need to toggle it depends
only on the layer itself. This is - as I explained - very much different
from locking the layer completely: Your attention shifts to a different
group of layers and you want to toggle this on multiple layers
simultaneously. With your proposed solution it would be a major PITA to
do this.
