No, there is not a way to make it read-only.

The 2007.0 snapshot is what we build the release against.  It has
nothing to do with your installing a system or not, as you will want to
update your system after installation *anyway* so using a 2006.1 CD and
running an "emerge --sync" and updating world afterwards will give you
the exact same results.

If this is really something that would cause you to go to another
distribution over, there's not much that we can do about it and it is
likely that you might not be happy with Gentoo, anyway.
