Disable upload on non mapped mailboxes

In SFG, we have routing channels which move the data between partners. Ideally, a partner should only be able to upload files on mailboxes which have routing channel defined. Uploading files to a non mapped mailbox(a mailbox which is not a producer path in any routing channel) doesn't make any sense. Moreover, we cannot restrict write access to user home mailbox. We understand that SFG is fully based on concept of producers and consumers / mailbox so it is ideal to restrict access to unmonitored mailboxes as best practice.
