Maybe I'm only partially understanding this then. My take on this is 
that the cantSelect property really only comes into play when the edit 
tool (or whatever it's called these days if it's not development) is 
active. So you have full edit capability, and that goes beyond just 
drawing or moving objects around on the screen.
