comment How do I make multiple calls to a web service without taxing that service heavily? Scaling question
You say you don't have enough knowledge to start googling the problem... Try "chatty vs chunky".

comment Is there a pattern to restrict which classes can update another class?
@Aarongaught, sorry for the lapsus, I meant the caller, not the user.

@Aarongaught, it seems to me that it seemed to you that what I wanted was to validate the user of the class. What I was asking was how to restrict who can set and get the value vs those who can only get it. If you see my own answer you'll see that, so I guess we're pretty much in the same page.

@GlenPeterson, I've updated the question with a more concrete example. It was you answer that led me to the solution so I'm marking it as the accepted answer, but for the sake of completeness I'm posting my own answer with the approach I'll be taking.

comment Is there a pattern to restrict which classes can update another class?
I completely agree with your all your comments, but as I mentioned in my question I'm not really talking about security here. I don't want to validate the caller, I just want the next programmer modifying the code to be sure that he really needs to set the data...
