Xavier doesn't mean locking it to a specific layer.... but to the bottomlayer... so that whatever layer happens to be on the bottom will then be set to 'color'
I understood that, so the scenario I presented was when you bring resources from other software and open it for example a PSD ? Then your bottomlayer will be turned to another blending mode.
the bottom layer will always keeps the blend mode that the artist chose.
... just for internal use TVPaint will treat is as if its on color. (like it does with the Display Current function)
so you can set your bottomlayer to multiply for instance (tvpaint will ignore this because the layer happens to be the bottomlayer.

then... when you import another element that goes under the layer... that layer is no longer the bottomlayer so now tvpaint will again treat it as its set blendmode, which was multiply.

I see what you mean, I thought Xavier meant to lock the mode only to color.

THanks for claryfing Peter! :)
