There's no trivially easy solution, but you could hack the code. I
think this would work (for MM2.1): find the attributes you want to
disable in the Mailman/Gui/*.py files and comment them out. They
won't show up in the admin interface and you'd have to use
bin/withlist (or bin/config_list) to modify them.
Note that this is a fairly heavy handed approach because this will
affect all the lists on your server.
