 When a child theme is set to be edited in the Theme Editor, a list of
 templates from the parent will appear, if not overwritten by identical
 filenames in the child theme.

 However, for theme frameworks, where editing the parent theme templates is
 bad (as the theme framework may update at any time), there's no way for
 the parent theme to specify not to include its templates within the list
 for editing.

 Could there be some option for parent themes to specify that their
 templates should not be available to the Editor, either completely by an
 option, or by some optional comment tag at the top of each out-of-bounds
 template file?
