Wouldn't keeping it simple be best?  ie. just have M-left and M-right
move the current entry and let M-S-left and M-S-right move as it does
today (including locked regions etc)

I've found I want to move this one list entry in the middle left and
can't since it drags the entire substructure with it -- so I resort to
deleting (or inserting) spaces to move the one line.  It's works but
it's a little more cumbersome than prompting/demoting the entire

But then it's only one line so it's not hard to edit a single line...

I don't think removing the lock is really a good idea personally.
