I don't know anything about DreamWeaver, but I've seen lots of other
templating systems over the years, and they've always had some
relatively-easy-to-recognize technique for separating template-text from
everything else. Assuming that's the case for DreamWeaver, you could write a
commitinfo hook that checked the file being committed for changes *inside*
the template area and disallow the commit if any are found. That would leave
the programmer with a file he couldn't check in, but that's sort of the idea
after all :-)
