I'm creating a landing page inside of a site definition.

This landing page will have all blank web part zones.

What I would like to do, is have the zones initially set by someone like a Site Collection Admin, so there are a group of core web parts.

Then the rest of the users can customize the remaining slots themselves.

I'm looking for two options: One, can the core webparts be locked down, so they always display? Two, at the very least, can I make a page personalizable while restricting editing?

How skilled are your site collection admins? Could they edit a page layout using SP Designer? If so, using a page layout the SCA can add webparts outside of zones and then the end users could customize any webpart zones on the page.
