Bring back a basic security option urgently
Since 2007 they left out the possibility to secure your database in a customized way.
I still can't believe it! Anyhow, personally i don't need the entire workgroup system on user level of the past. But I (we?) need urgently something that prevent that some one can change what I have built! Just a simple setting "allow design/changes" YES or NO. (And of course an administrator right to change this setting.) This setting must include the database properties so that for instance setting of the AllowbypassKey cannot be changed.
A simple direct quit/close on your database if someone tries to open your Access file it in a non trusted state would be a nice extra btw (just close it, if if you not trust it, option so to say. Instead of running around and do - and view- wat you want as currently.)

Converting to ACCDE gives you most of that. But I would agree to including Design view of Tables and Queries being included when converting to an ACCDE.
