Why does this not come up as an option for corp hangars?

Because it is not implemented.

As a follow-up: lockdown has a dubious amount of protection from the CEO and directors. If they are trusted (they should be), you can simply use a hangar with only VIEW access. You don't need to grant TAKE to use a BPO.

All of this security hinged on the fact that [Bad] Bobby would not have access to over 50% of the company's shares and so couldn't vote to unlock the blueprints on his own. For over a year, this system worked amicably. In the background, however, [Bad] Bobby was slowly scheming to get his hands on more shares.

To complete the scam, [Bad] Bobby initiated a vote to create more shares under the guise of adding more trustees. Despite recommendations by regular market guru Proton Power that trustees decline the move, the vote passed and more shares were created. With access to over 50% of the shares, Bobby was able to kick all other directors from the corp and steal the entire company's assets. [Bad] Bobby claims the total value he has "cashed in" his reputation for is in excess of 850 billion ISK. To put that into perspective, 850 billion is enough ISK to buy about 2575 PLEX. That would keep an account active for over 214 years, and could be worth around $45,000 US dollars.

Important: A vote can be won by anyone possessing just 1 share, if nobody else votes. Only the number of votes cast matters.
