Can I Disable Parent Category selection in Start New Discussion?

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.1 & Earlier Help
Just updated to 2.0.17. Loving the new category setup, but there's one problem. I have parent categories that should have no discussions directly in them. For browsing this isn't an issue since I can check "Display Root Categories as Headings." However, if a user starts a new discussion, they can select those root/parent categories.

I really don't want users to accidentally add discussions to those parent categories. Is there a way to prevent them from being selected in the category drop down?
