Hi Eliot,

No, that is not possible.
We have an option in text mode for locking the tags, see Document -> 
Source -> Locks/Unlocks the XML tags or make the Source toolbar visible 
(Perspective -> Show Toolbar -> Source) and use the action from that 
It will be interesting to link these feature requests to a more real 
example usecase?

Best Regards,
