Good idea indeed. Maybe the class could be named "lock-page".

Also, I dream of an icon that would be displayed (just once on a page) 
when a field on a locked page has been changed, showing that the page is 
"locked" from navigating away until a save or cancel button is clicked, 
or the person confirms the navigating away action.
