lock/protect a selection of points/polys/edges?

Is there any way to protect a section of a mesh?

Frustrating when you select some points/polys/edges that you don't realize you've selected (usually by having "only select visible" unchecked by accident) and preform some functions on the area you are working and screw the parts you didn't want to. I tried making a poly selection tag and putting that on a layer that was locked, but it only locked the tag,, not the polys.

When I'm  in that mode, I use the Selection>Hide selection / -Hide unselected.

That will work to a degree -  but loop selections go in to hidden areas.

Super bummer to unhide an area to find it all messed up, seems like hiding should protect it though, but it doesn’t.
