Managed solutions should not allow editing to canvas apps

One of the way a managed solution is defined is its ability to not let the users edit its components. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/common-data-service/introduction-solutions#mana...

However, this validation was lifted, at least for canvas app. The only way I found that out was through a comment by @caburk  under this ideaThere is no documentation for this change, and Microsoft still defines the managed solution components as un-editable

This changes goes against the definition of managed solution and is very frustrating. You pretty much cannot sell your solution that requires a canvas app without leaking you code. This should be a future update, especially after this idea is completed as this will allow us to protect our IP.

Just found this out today as well. This completely sidelines any app developer that's trying to create a sustaining business. An update is needed immediately!

Discovered this during a training class. Risky!
