Add safeguards around editing emails that are used in active send definitions.

Email Studio

Warn a user if they have opened an email that is used in an active send definition to prevent errors. Tell them the location of the send definition in case they need to make related changes.

Here are user stories around this request:
As an email producer, I want to know which specific send definitions are using an email I have opened, so I can view and edit the send definitions, if necessary.

As a marketing manager, I don't want it to be possible for anyone to make changes to an email in any way such that the changes could go live without approval.

As business manager, I want it to be impossible for any SFMC resource to modify any email content or data in use for active sends without approval, so that we mitigate our liability if changes have dollar or legal impact.

As support staff, I want emails used by active send definitions (UI or Triggered) to be read only and have an audit trail of changes so I don't have to spend hours doing data searches and follow up when one has accidentally been changed.
