I haven't tried exactly this, Ray, but in 8.7 you can limit access to Categories by user, and then establish Workflow and simply never approve or authorize new categories that an Author might accident ...

Version 8.7 has the same levels of authorisation as 8.5 so you can define an Administrator, Author or User but you cannot do much on rights within each level. An Author can add or delete any category unless you hide the category from them. It's not the safest model as an Author may accidentally remove or move the wrong category. It would be good to have a type of author who can only change term descriptions and cannot do anything to categories.
