Q - question

AutoCAD can draw to frozen and locked layers.

A - answer You can draw even in frozen, locked or switched off layers in AutoCAD drawing with tool palettes.

If you specify the target layer in tool properties of the given tool in a palette, AutoCAD will draw or insert the object even in case that that layer is frozen or off (it will unlock it temporarily). You can see the result of the command only after you thaw or switch on that layer.
