    What would this solve?

People would have to type C-x C-q if they really want to put text in
the *scratch* buffer, and that will mean they have to think about
whether they really want to do that.

I am not sure this is a good idea, on the balance, but it certainly
addresses the problem.

    As long as we're autosaving, I'm not sure that's necessary.  (I'm
    assuming that proposal applies to any default-selected buffer, whether
    "*scratch*" or some other name.)

It could at least in theory.
