After doing some thinking and research here, what about using chattr to set the
i attribute?

man chattr tells me:

QUOTE
A file with the ā€˜iā€™ attribute cannot be modified: it cannot be  deleted
or  renamed,  no  link  can  be created to this file and no data can be
written to the file.  Only the superuser or a  process  possessing  the
CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE capability can set or clear this attribute.
