It was possilbe in the old KDE3 days. There was a property dialog for 
e.g. USB-Sticks where you could set UID, permissions and read-only 

The more you have to do with security and forensic IT stuff the more 
you need a read only access to the data to not damage something by 
accident. My very old USB stick hat a litte switch to enable read only
