Flexible variants and source image

Per the docs:

Warning

Enabling flexible variants on your account effectively allows anyone to obtain untransformed, full-resolution images and their metadata by changing variant properties in the URL.

I was wondering why there is no way to block the source image from being publicly accessible? Or set a max scale that can be generated?

It’s not a huge deal for most customers, but as a photographer/media entity, that limits the usefulness of flexible variants.
