The boss wants to lock down the titleblock so no one can change the apprearence of the "T"block but still wants the attributes to work. Currently the tileblock is a stand alone drawing which is used to start new drawings and is also in template format.
You might try separating the attributes into a text block, and using the 'static' parts of the T-block as an xref.
I've found this to be useful for projects in that it allows one to set up the main title, client logo, etc. once; but still have a standard text block to insert and edit as needed on each layout.
Sheet files (and their templates) could xattach the graphical parts of the titleblock while the attributes could be contained in a separate block within the sheet files themselves. If you use fields, then those items need to be outside the block, unless they are attributes of the block.
Technically, there is no way to lock the titleblock from being changed unless you use a product like cadlock. These are techniques to eliminate inadvertent or accidental changes and to maintain consistency.
