Any simple solution would be good news.

Preventing to delete a draft would probably lead to side effects, I don't know.
If it depends on a specific workflow, or a predefined set of modules,
it limits its validity as a general solution.
What if you modify the lines of the invoice ? You must be allowed to
do so and you may mess everything with no reverse path. Shouldn't you
also block lines editing ? and wouldn't that be worse than the today
behavior ?
