Standard objects (shapes, textboxes, images not in Writer, OLEs not in Writer)
open the position and size dialog where in position and size can exclusively be
locked, in that when position is locked, size is also locked.

If images or other objects are intended to be locked from editing by other
users of a document, there are means of lock content of a document, but hiding
functionality from normal users who would like to perform the same functional
with easy isnt the correct approach.

The context menu is to hold contextual functionality that is regularly used,
whether it be the setting or unsetting of the feature. In Impress, the position
and size dialog is the most opened dialog according to the OOo stat and the
checking and unchecking of the position and size checkboxes are highly used.
Also, the functionality is also being implemented into the sidebar (bug 90295).
