    I'm guessing to prevent against transfer to a different registrar. You should still be able to point the domain to whatever nameservers you want and edit things like that.

    This is a security feature for you as we'll as the domain registrar.

    Many schemes to defraud registrars are based on bouncing a recently registered domain name away, before payment is processed. Then bouncing again before a transfer is complete and changing ownership info in the process.

    Most registrars started imposing a 60 day "locked period" to stop these kinds of schemes.

    Locking only affects the ability to transfer the domain to a other registrar, it has absolutely no effect on any other aspect of the domain. You can still use it as you normally would.
