Only if a big problem, I'd suggest that specific
text (not whole articles) be protected,
but not locked. Eg implementing a requirement for confirmation by multiple
editors before it is published. A lock would be too likely to thwart
legitimate edits and could be abused by moderators.
Moreover, there was already a preliminary study on vandalisms on
Wikidata, and it found out that vandalism impact is very low and most
of the vandalisms happen to "sensitive" items such as... FC Barcelona,
Justin Bieber, and the like.
Let's continue as we did all these years: if something's wrong, just
fix it; if something becomes a vandal target, (ask to) protect it.
