I would suggest defining a specialization of
scrolling-fred-dialog-item (available in CCL;Library) and 
defining a view-key-event-handler method to do nothing, or to beep:

(require :scrolling-fred-dialog-item)

(defclass read-only-scrolling-fred-dialog-item

(defmethod view-key-event-handler ((self read-only-scrolling-fred-dialog-item)
   (declare (ignore keystroke))
