I would suggest you to use the ItemTemplateSelector property and have two different DataTemplates for the read-only/locked and normal tab. You may have a look at this help article. You may also have a look at this example code - http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#TabControl/Databinding.
Please let us know if the ItemTemplateSelector works for you.
All the best,
the Telerik team
