Sometimes when it seems like you can't get at something on a page, it's 
because it's not where you think it is. Perhaps it's on another layer. 
You should be able to select a locked frame even though you can't edit 
it, and then you can see in the X,Y,Z tab that it's locked.

In general, I don't think it should be quite so desirable or necessary 
to lock things on a Master Page.
