On the surface, it sounds like an easy request. But then, start thinking of the complexity. One password for any given install? One password for each group? One password for each device? A master password to allow to create groups? The complexity of this thing can escalate rather quickly.
@sergeadam for sure, but given their aversion to granular options probably safe to say it would be simple such as a pin to associate a control to a system. Personally I don't think they will add a password, just my opinion though.
Yes, but hen people will complain that they have speakers in every room, and their kids should be able to control their own speakers but not some others.

Sonos already provided the facility to separate systems by setting up separate households. Presently you can have your kids under separate systems from yours, but there is no way to stop them from jumping between them in the app

Adding the option to set a password to join a system would accomplish the scenario you describe afaict.
Please have this option available!
None of these have replies I guess they don’t care
3 years and no replies from Sonos?
Having the same issue in the office. The employees ignore the fact that they're not supposed to access Sonos but many are using the app and we can't shut them out of the network.

Enjoying the cranberries I take it? :)

Having some kind of access management is definitely something to look into. Nothing beats a drunk party guest turning to volume all the way up - at 4 in the morning - as a friend (and his neighbors!) got to experience.
