Because it doesn't apply. Lockloc only applies to objects that change 
size automatically when redrawn (like images) or which can be moved by 
the mouse. In those cases you lock them so that they either won't 
resize, or so you won't accidentally move them around. You can't drag 
cards around inside the stack window, and their dimensions never change 
unless you specifically do it, so there is nothing to lock.

Stacks don't have a lockloc property either. You can always drag them by 
their titlebar if it's showing, and their dimensions are fixed and never 
change automatically. Instead, we have the resizeable property to 
prevent user resizing, and we can hide the titlebar to prevent dragging.
