Completely agree with you. As an auditor I have to create and modify a 
lot of different scan configs which is very time consuming in the given way.

Maybe just make an option to lock the configuration. And as you 
mentioned mark it in the report.
For me I still would like the ability to diff the reports even if the 
config is not locked but it should be clearly stated that this might 
have some impact on the diff.

Another proposal:
How about an easy way to clone a given config/target? This would make 
the whole config changing task much easier/faster.
